Born to be Blue starring Ethan Hawke is a re-imagining of jazz trumpeter Chet Baker’s life in the 60’s. When Chet stars in a film about himself, a romance heats up with his costar, the enigmatic Jane (Carmen Ejogo). Production is shelved when Chet’s past comes back to haunt him and it appears he may never play music again but Jane challenges him to mount a musical comeback against all the odds.
