Synopsis:
B.B. King opens his heart and tells the story of how an oppressed and orphaned young man came to influence and earn the unmitigated praise of the music industry and it's following, to carry the title: 'King of the Blues'. Filmed on location all over America, as well as in the United Kingdom, this picture brings to life the heat - and - gin soaked plantations where it all began. With full co-operation of the B.B. King museum, owners of vaults and archives so precious and immense, that several trips had to be made to America to revisit the collection and partake of its many gems.
Prejudice and segregation has stained the lives of countless black persons, and B.B. 'Riley' King made sure that through his music, he never allowed it to mar his spirit... this is the essence of the story that makes an astoundingly beautiful film; extremely informative and visually captivating.
