The story follows Maliki, a young Jazz musician in a rapidly gentrifying Jamaica Queens community. While his community is changing around him, Maliki sets out on a journey to continue his late father's legacy and reopen his Jazz club. Eventually, Maliki realizes that his investor doesn't have the same intentions as him.

The film highlights the rich Jazz culture of Jamaica Queens which often goes unmentioned. Against the backdrop of beautiful Jazz music, the film provides commentary on local politics, gentrification, crime, and how it all impacts art and everyday life in the community.

The experience of making the film was shared collectively by the community as a whole, and we're pleased to deliver this authentic, impactful piece of Art to the Queens before the rest of the world.
