Profiling legendary jazz trumpeter Tiny Davis and her partner of over 40 years, drummer-pianist Ruby Lucas, "Tiny & Ruby: Hell Divin' Women" weaves together rare jazz recordings, live performances, vintage photographs, and narrative poetry by Cheryl Clarke.

The film establishes an informal, intimate style in which 78-year-old Tiny demonstrates that her chops and humor are both quite intact. This movie was filmed in (16mm & video/30 mins) and very hard to find. It's that good! Let's a person see what being a lesbian of color was like, years ago, but also shows a great 40 year relationship and great trumpeteer!
