This film explores the uncertain future of the steel guitar, an instrument primarily played by older, white men. Because it's an expensive and challenging instrument, most young and diverse musicians do not have access to steel guitars or instructors. The film follows one man's journey to pass on his knowledge and keep the steel guitar alive, and his inspirational story is a model for anyone looking to make a difference in the world.
