A dreadlocked, dashiki-clad man (Ayuko Babu) roams his community on New Year’s Day trying to drum up help for a female friend whose overdue rent could land her daughter and herself on the street. The protagonist’s voiceover narration free-ranges from personal backstories to musing on the relationship between blues and jazz.
