In the 1950s, Chet Baker's jazz trumpeting, intimate crooning and pretty boy good looks epitomized West Coast cool. When famed photographer Bruce Weber caught up with him three decades later, time and drug addiction had ravaged his life and angelic beauty. Filmed during what would turn out to be Baker's final year, this bittersweet portrait intercuts gorgeous black and white footage of the gaunt, latter-day Baker with images of the young jazz trumpeter in 1950s footage and photographs by William Claxton.
