Trumpeter and jazz singer Chet Baker (Ethan Hawke) became an icon in the 1950s. As the film begins, it's the late 1960s and Chet is playing himself in a film about his own life.
He strikes up a passionate romance on and off the set with Jane (Carmen Ejogo), an actress playing one of his lovers, but when he's brutally beaten in a parking lot after a gig, his future suddenly isn't so bright.
His mouth is so badly damaged that his musical career is derailed and as a consequence, the film is shelved. However, Jane stands by him and he becomes determined to regain his place among his peers — including his friend and collaborator Dizzy Gillespie (Kevin Hanchard), his rival Miles Davis (Kedar Brown) and his reticent producer (Callum Keith Rennie).
