The two of them must have raised a few eyebrows. Satan and Adam: an aging black eccentric and a young white man playing fiery blues together on a sidewalk in Harlem. It was the 1980s, a time when racial tensions were high, but they acted like there were no divisions or conflicts whatsoever. And they were great at what they did. In time, their casual performances turned into a full-fledged career, with a growing group of fans, real concerts and a record contract. It seemed like the future was theirs. Unfortunately, Satan suddenly disappeared, putting an end to the duo. V. Scott Balcerek's documentary, which was made over a period of more than two decades, talks about the duo’s interrupted friendship and their later fate. This is a film that starts out like an urban legend, only to gradually gain more and more momentum and emotional weight.
