    • An African American producer gets a dream assignment… go to Africa and make a documentary on a famous Congolese Musician, Jean De Dieu.

In his struggle to get a ‘film in the can’, we get a close look at the hilarious, tragic, narcissistic, magical world of Congolese music and the environment from which it flourishes.
