Jazz legend Dexter Gordon gives the performance of a lifetime as saxophone player Dale Turner, a talented musician whose alcoholism and alienation are getting the best of him in 1950s New York. When Dale is invited to play at a club in Paris, he enjoys a few precious moments of freedom from racism, and a moving if brief relationship with his young daughter and an enthusiastic local fan.
