In a frigid January in the mid seventies, during the height of the Cold War, jazz pianist Drew Fisher travels from New York to Moscow as part of a State Department good will musical tour. Struggling with the demons of past addiction and personal failure, Drew falls in love with the tour organizer, Katya Timoshenko, herself mired in a loveless marriage and the stagnation of the Soviet state. Beneath the watchful eyes of the CIA and KGB, their love blossoms like the sublime music Drew and his group are playing. Against impossible odds they find expression of their love but the bureaucrats who see a threat in Drew and Katya's love combine to destroy their future, as Katya considers defection.
