Synopsis:
Starring Sammy Davis, Jr. in a career defining role, 'A Man Called Adam' charts the fortunes of a talented but tortured jazz musician in the turbulent 1960s. Adam appears to have it all - fame, charisma and incredible talent -but an inner anger and a tormented past threaten to destroy his career. When he meets jazz legend Willie Ferguson (Louis Armstrong), and falls in love with his granddaughter (Cicely Tyson), a straight-talking civil rights activist, Adam begins to question his lifestyle, and resolves to tame his drinking and wild behaviour. But despite his new-found love, Adam is haunted by the shadows of his past. Can he escape his demons, before they destroy him entirely?
