London,1933: -panic-stricken jazz band leader Louis Lester asks his friend, music journalist Stanley Mitchell, to help him flee the country.
With Wesley gone Louis is disappointed at the band's lack of progress, then Mr. Donaldson arranges for them to play at a funeral organized by reclusive Lady Cremone, a dedicated jazz fan and former globe-trotter whom Stanley interviews for his magazine.
Interviewed by the police about the attack on Jessie Louis tells them that he saw Julian fleeing the scene but Pamela is insistent he was in Paris and asks Stanley to contact him with the news as he was especially fond of Jessie.
Using Sarah's private photographs Stanley compiles a special edition of 'Music Express' glorifying Jessie's career and Masterson arranges a lavish wake where Louis is puzzled by Julian's passionate oration.
Hit by the scandal the hotel loses many of its residents and the band is forced to split up.
Presented as a series of interviews undertaken by Stanley for his Music Express magazine and taking place at the peak of fame for the Louis Lester band, Louis, Jessie and Carla give an insight into their thoughts about fame as well as their personal stories.
