A polish boy is passionate to become a musician like his father, but his parents want him to pursue a more prosperous, secure career

Casper is the son of a polish family in the London in the 90s. The family moved to the UK for their son to pursue a career as a doctor or lawyer. Casper's father Michal is a blues musician at night, but as he struggles to feed his family, he needs to work as a garage mechanic at daytime. He faces a moral dilemma when his son wants to follow his passion and become a musician like his father, instead of listening to mother Olivia's wish to continue studying.
