Full Plot

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON is the inspiring story of a jazz legend and one of his last students. The legend is 91-year-old Clark Terry, a man who played in the Duke Ellington and Count Basie bands and mentored the likes of Miles Davis and Quincy Jones. His student is 24-year-old Justin Kauflin, a blind piano prodigy who struggles with stage fright but has a dream of following in his mentor's footsteps. When Justin is invited to compete in a prestigious jazz competition and Clark's health takes a turn for the worse, the film builds to an emotional climax, chronicling every heart-warming practice session and heart-breaking hospital visit. The result is an intimate portrait of two lives in music and of a teacher who continues to inspire even as he fights for his own survival. As Quincy Jones testifies: "He's one of god's gifts to this planet." Alan Hicks Plot not found
