Portrait of an outstanding jazz trumpeter Chet Baker. The movie features archive footage of the young artist in the 50s of the last century, playing e.g. with Charlie Parker, Gerry Mulligan and Russ Freeman and then, of a mature, weary musician at the end of his career. Baker's story is told by those who know him best: family, friends and colleagues. The film by Weber sketches a moving, multi-faceted picture of a brilliant musician, with his turbulent career marked by drug addiction. The film owes its title to the song recorded by Baker for the musical "Happy Go Lucky" in 1943.

1989 Oscars – Nominated as the Best Documentary
