Description

David Miles is twirling about in a world of his own when suddenly he is distracted by an experienced, professional woman. David reluctantly follows the woman to her lair and is hypnotically seduced by the woman's moves, her music and her lovemaking. When she tells him her name is Ophelia, David is even more mesmerized; as if taken by a goddess. Before meeting this woman David's life consisted of playing in his high school jazz orchestra, playing with a jazz trio, and living and eating in his parent's home. David's family is closed knit and his parents (Oscar and Celia), and siblings (Michele and Bowen) are well aware of the life he wants to live; but now they must accept the fact that he wants to leave the old ways of his life and begin a new journey, one that involves travel and playing in a small band of jazz musicians. He looks up to the male members of the band (Jonas "Redd" Butler on bass, Germain "Slim" Dawson on drums), and admires the vocalist, Sheree Cole. Sheree would like to have a much more intimate relationship with David. The band - Redd River - is counting on David's playing and writing abilities but David becomes sidetracked by his feelings for Ophelia and the hold she has over him. He is so awestruck by Ophelia that he cannot develop relationships with other women his own age, one in particular (Marie Jones). This power that Ophelia has eventually draws him in to the use of heroin; as a social user at first, but eventually he becomes wickedly addicted. David's drug use and womanizing eventually affects his performance as a musician and threatens his membership in the band.
