The Film

Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong has been performing for most of his 91 years, ever since his father carved his first fiddle from a wooden crate. At the film's center are the two great loves of Howard's life: his music, and artist Barbara Ward. Their two-decade romance is a creative partnership yielding new work and an outpouring of memories, defying our most basic assumptions about what it means to grow older.
