On a hot day in outback Western Australia in 1969, legendary American jazz trumpeter Billy Cross (Miles Davis) performs an impromptu concert on the tarmac after his plane makes an unscheduled stop. Among the stunned audience is John Anderson (Daniel Scott), aged nine, who decides on the spot to become a trumpet player. Twenty years later, John (Colin Friels) is making a meagre living tracking dingoes and playing trumpet in a local band. He still dreams of joining Billy on trumpet and makes a pilgrimage to meet his idol.
