A film about Erroll Garner, one of the greats of jazz, a musical genius and almost forgotten today: his breathtaking music, his life between great success and a previously unknown world behind the public figure.

Looking at Erroll Garner's life and his jazz also means tracing the decisive decades in the USA between the 50s and 70s. These are the years in which the American dream was born and lost again. The America between consumer boom, racism and the Vietnam War.
