Logline: A charismatic musician tries to get his act together to bring his broken jazz band back in form but finds something more meaningful in his fate.


Synopsis: Sameer, aka Sam, is a jazz violinist who gets into a depression hole after his bandleader/dad's Maestro Shaan’s sudden death—after three years of alcoholism, squandering, and almost ruining his marriage with his wife Anya, he returns to form the jazz band his dad created. Sam decides to honor his dad and persist in his legacy; he cleans up his act with Anya and tries to bring his broken band together but struggles with it as he has burned many bridges. After a series of failures, he seeks help from one of his old friends and a former band member Dev. At last, Sam fails at forming the band and figures out that he can fulfill his purpose and honor his dad by teaching kids the violin.




SAM: Lead, 20’s – 30’s. Male. Any Ethnicity.

Sameer is a charismatic, charming, and talented violinist who has lost touch with many aspects of life after his dad’s sudden death. He is on his lowest of lows, rock bottom. He tries to clean up his act as he struggles to find his purpose as a highly gifted violinist.  


ANYA: Lead, 20’s – 30’s. Female. Any Ethnicity. 

Anya is a beautiful, strong, and self-made woman. Anya is at her breaking point with Sam’s behavior. She has supported and ran the house while Sam dazed off his days by drinking in depression. Her respect for Sam’s dad and his family makes her believe in Sam’s recent change and gives him one final chance.


DEV: Supporting, 20’ – 30’s. Male. Any Ethnicity. 

Dev is a jazz drummer who grew up alongside Sam and learned jazz music from Sam’s dad. Dev is skeptical of Sam at first but slowly gets convinced with the idea. He tries to help Sam in his quest to bring the band together but fails in the process.
