    • Synopsis
    • A small fishing village thirty years later becomes the epicenter of jazz music in the Iberian Peninsula. The protagonists remember with nostalgia and hope that time and reconstruct the experiences through the investigation of two local young men who at that time were not yet born. A music documentary that recalls the jazz days where Cangas of Morrazo was the meeting place of the best jazz musicians from Spain and abroad.
      The look back at a turbulent period, the first years of democracy, through characters who relive situations over time fail to clear. Thirty years after these events the musicians and friends back to see the faces together for the first time. But time transforms and modulates the memories and now the meeting of old friends who went their separate ways, as a review of accumulated experiences.
      Eight foreign musicians, eight Galician and two young men born in Cangas, come together to make the meeting a great jam session. Friendship, and jazz intergenerational encounter with the landscape that offer the corners of this town in Morrazo. People, sounds, spaces were moving under constant rhythm of the waves on the coast of Cangas, as if an endless jam session to accompany lives of all its neighbors.
