Lisa Simone moves into the villa where her mother, Nina Simone, died. In a trunk, she discovers her mother's autobiography. Suddenly, someone appears on the doorstep. It is Nina. That night, just that night, they talk to each other with open hearts. They have so much to talk about. Or is it Nina, alone, talking to herself, dwelling on her past and her failures?

Jazz and classical music collide to question filiation, love, racism, illness, the struggle for civil rights and Afro-feminism. A musical and theatrical odyssey, without champagne, but with a pianist and two superb voices, on the life of an essential artist.
