Eugene is an extraordinary talent in classic guitar, but he dreams of being a famous Blues guitarist. So he investigates to find a storied lost song. He asks the legendary Blues musician Willie Brown to help him, but Willie demands to free him from the old-people's prison first and to really learn the blues on the way to its origin: Mississippi Delta. Eugene doesn't know yet about Willie's deal with the devil, that he now wants to revoke. Written by

As the film opens Robert Johnson is seen plays and sings, with a high pitched soprano voice. But he actually had a deeper voice, the fact that when his recordings were made the speed of the master was slowed down because Johnson's songs were so long they would not "fit" on the recorder, so slowing the device would collect more but raise the pitch when played back. And thus all Robert Johnson's original 78 records play back at a higher pitch than what he actually sang. Modern digital technique allows these recording to be played back at the true and correct pitch with the and speed slowed down which drops the vocal range of Johnson back to his real vocal range and authentic speed value.
