Wallace Roney, the only protege of Miles Davis, embarks on a quest to complete his mentor´s unfinished masterpiece, Universe. It was to be Wallace´s final work before passing away.
In 1966, when Miles Davis Quintet´s reputation was at its peak, Wayne Shorter, a group member, wrote not just an ordinary jazz song but an ambitious masterpiece, Universe Compositions, that transcends genres upon Miles´ request. However, Miles Davis Quintet was disbanded while practicing the piece, and the song got lost in people´s minds. The complete performance of the piece was Miles Davis´ last wish when he died in 1991. Miles´ only student Wallace Roney tries to make the wish come true 50 years after the song was created. The epic and touching story about Universal Compositions from its birth to the resurrection resonates deeply through rich footage and clean black-and-white videos. (CHUN Jinsu)
