Seventeen year old David Alvarez's only dream in life is to become a national hip-hop artist. After his mother’s deployment overseas, David’s dreams are shattered when he is forced to leave Los Angeles to go live with his grandmother at a retirement community in Visby Falls, Minnesota. Not liking small-town living, David reluctantly accepts the reality that he is facing a long and boring year; that is until he meets the McKinney brothers. The McKinney brothers are three old blues men from Mississippi who were displaced by a hurricane and relocated by FEMA to the same retirement community as David's grandmother.
Initially, David and the McKinneys have little in common, especially when it comes to their music, but in very short order they overcome their differences and David takes an interest in the blues, discovering the blues is the very foundation of his hip hop. As Galin McKinney teaches David how to play the harmonica, David gets pretty darn good, so good in fact, the McKinneys decide to pull their band out of retirement after 20 years and make David their new lead singer. After a number of venues the McKinneys and David learn that they have been accepted into the Battle of the Blues competition where a number of hard decisions and unbelievable surprises await them all.
