Plot – Elwood Blues is free after many years spent in prison and finds out that a lot of things have changed. His brother Jake is dead, his music group doesn’t exist anymore and the orphanage where he grew up has been destroyed. The only relative he has is a kind of step-brother called Cabel, the son of the orphanage’s guardian. Elwood meets up with Cabel, but he is the Chicago’s harsh police’s chief and doesn’t want to be related to Elwood. He turns to Sister Mary, who’s looking for a foster parent for Buster, a 10-year-old orphan. Elwood takes care of him and understands that it is time to recreate the old music group and shine again. However, the members have to face many difficulties, such as Cabel’s policemen and the Muscovite Mafia. After some ups-and-downs, the band participates to the traditional competition in Louisiana. The old rivals win the first prize, but the music group improvises something anyway, until Sister Mary and the police arrive: at that point, Elwood and Buster run away chased by the police.

    - Elwood Blues: These are unsophisticated men. They only respond to fear and the draw of lucre. We elicit this by using iconographic symbols, and psychological intimidation. The way we look together presents a uniform image of strength and organization. Don't say anything. Look...” (continue)
