On a transatlantic steamer the crew adopts an abandoned baby who grows up aboard (into Tim Roth). One day at the ship’s grand piano he discovers a preternatural talent for jazz. When his growing legend means Jelly Roll Morton embarks, they have the piano duel to end them all. Today the liner is being broken up, but has he left it, even now?
