Jazz. Love at first sight, or sound. Love that you pursue to the end of the world. You take an instrument and head out on the quest for the Holy Grail. First you spend time in stuffy schoolrooms, where years and hours of rigorous practice pass, while you hope that one day you'll be able to play freely.

Jazz. Love at first sight, or sound. Love that you pursue to the end of the world. You take an instrument and head out on the quest for the Holy Grail. First you spend time in stuffy schoolrooms, where years and hours of rigorous practice pass, while you hope that one day you'll be able to play freely. From the safe haven of the schools, from under your mentor's wings, and straight into the darkness of jazz clubs, if you're lucky to festival stages or the street, if there is no other option. Because the need to play music is too great. Although you know that lots of good artists are hungry, that people wave off the word jazz, and that society likes simple and quick things. Then improvisation becomes the way you live. The documentary film puts a face on the local jazz scene, presents eight more visible artists, follows them to Vienna, Amsterdam and New York, and focuses on their search of perfection and the effort to find their place in marginal music.
