The African-American pianist Daryl Davis, who has performed with legendary artists like Chuck Berry and Little Richard, has a dream. For the last twenty years he goes around the United States, befriending high-ranking Ku Klux Klan members, in the belief that he will manage to change their views. Will he be able, though, to convince black activists of his weird hobby, when they watch as their brothers are getting shot at in the streets by members of the police force? An unbelievable true story that emphatically reminds us how complex human nature can really be.
