Logline

An indie gem that plays on issues of sexism, racism, and a universe of possibilities as free-flowing as a jazz night in Harlem.

Just as New York City’s ban on dancing, said to be weaponized against people of color, is about to be repealed, the paths of a nightclub operator, a bartender, a university professor, a suicidal woman, two petty criminals, and an unemployed man cross at the historic Paris Blues bar in Harlem, where the lives of these strangers will be changed forever by a shooting.
