Biopic of jazz legend Django Reinhardt, focusing on Reinhardt’s flight from German-occupied Paris in 1943.

During the German Occupation, gypsy Django Reinhardt, a true hero of the guitar, is at the peak of his career. Every night he has Paris reeling to his swing music at the Folies Bergères, while his gypsy brethren are hunted down and massacred throughout Europe. When the German propaganda ministry wants to send him to Berlin for a series of concerts, he senses imminent danger and decides to flee to Switzerland with the help of one of his admirers. He travels to Thonon-les-Bains, on the bank of Lake Geneva, with his pregnant wife and his mother. But their escape is more complicated than anticipated.
