Thompson serves as an executive producer for the film and stars as Sylvie, a woman who dreams of a career in television and spends her summer days helping around her father’s record store, as she waits for her fiancé to return from war during the summer of 1957.

Asomugha plays Robert, a saxophonist who spends late nights playing behind a less-talented but well-known bandleader, as member of a jazz quartet.

 When Robert takes a part-time job at the record store, the two begin a friendship that sparks a deep passion in each of them unlike anything they have felt before. As the summer winds down, life takes them in different directions, bringing their relationship to an end. Years pass, Sylvie’s career as a TV producer blossoms, while Robert has to come to terms with what the age of Motown is doing to the popularity of Jazz. In a chance meeting, Sylvie and Robert cross paths again, only to find that while their lives have changed, their feelings for each other remain the same.
