In his own mind, Seven Waters is a legend. Nobody knows his name, but he is convinced a camera and a healthy ego will change that. Stumbling upon a mysterious jazz connoisseur during a sweltering New Orleans summer, he embarks on a mission to unravel the man’s obsession in a documentary that will launch his career. His circle of creative cohorts — the feminist documentarian Whitney, the handsome writer Tahj, the love poet Phoenyx, the ethereal painter Katarina, the lovelorn screenwriter Marco, and the ambitious actress Fiona — move to the rhythm of the Deuce Generation, artists seeking to make their marks in the 2000 millennium. The tight-knit crew learns that life is far from easy in the Big Easy, because the belly of the bayou holds the darkest untold stories. A symphony of secrets makes it difficult to hear harmonies over the beats of betrayal and the pulse of deceit.
