Director Alain Gomis delves into the archives to show us a visit by Thelonious Monk, the American jazz composer and pianist known for his style of improvisation, to Paris in 1969. The starting point is a raw interview that Monk gives to French television and the clash with the stereotypes he encounters. The result is a candid, improvised mosaic portrait of the jazz master.
