    John Kitime, an energetic musician in his 60s, puts together a band to revive the dying sound of Tanzanian Zilipendwa, music from the early independence era. Weaving memories of the past and dreams for the future, John and his bandmates revisit the golden era of gleaming horns and packed dance halls as they struggle to keep the music alive in a passionate argument for “the ones that were loved". Will they succeed?
