Dale Turner is a fantastic saxophone player, slowly losing the battle with alcoholism, estranged from his family, and hanging on by a thread in the 1950’s New York jazz world. He gets an offer to play in Paris, where he meets a fan who wants to save him. Dale’s poignant relationship with the man and his young daughter re-kindles his spirit and his music as the end draws near.
