Late to the session, the fearless, fiery Ma engages during a battle of wills together with her white manager and producer over control of her music. because the band waits within the studio’s claustrophobic rehearsal room, ambitious trumpeter Levee (Chadwick Boseman) – who has an eye fixed for Ma’s girlfriend and is decided to stake his own claim on the music industry – spurs his fellow musicians into an eruption of stories revealing truths which will forever change the course of their lives.
