Official Selection, 2018 Tribeca Film Festival

NYC 1986. Adam, a lanky young blond-haired guy walks down 125th Street exploring Harlem and sees a grizzled street musician, a one-man band who sings and plays the guitar and percussion with his feet at the same time. He calls himself Mr. Satan and he plays a mean blues. Unexpectedly, the white Jewish kid pulls out a harmonica and asks Satan to jam, and a musical partnership in perfect sync is born. The odd couple are soon killing it at music festivals and other gigs. Then, suddenly, Satan drops out of sight. Two years later, the filmmakers find him in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Running Time: 78 min.
Language: English
