Synopsis
An homage to Roger Cicero and his father Eugen – the exceptional musicians who died too young and left behind an inimitable musical legacy. The film is portraying the highs, lows and cracks of their outstanding lives and careers across all boundaries. Close companions are telling the deep cinematic story, illuminating a struggling genius and an exceptional gifted singer, who died at the height of his career. Two remarkable biographies and unique father-son relationship. Eugen Cicero played with the legendary singers Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Bassey, Caterina Valente, and Oscar Peterson; Roger Cicero created unique concerts with Till Brönner, Lutz Krajenski and in diverse band and trio formations.
