Storyline

The life story of the legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. He was this handsome gypsy whose music was just reaching the mainstream when a fire started in the gypsy caravan and he rushed in to save his wife (getting badly burned in the process). The doctors wanted to amputate his left hand and right leg, but the gypsies (kidnapped) him and nursed him back to health. He played anyway, until he was captured during WWII by the Nazis, who had outlawed jazz in Europe and wanted to completely exterminate gypsies. His music wound up saving his life." He later became the toast of the Paris jazz set and realized his dream to play with Ellington at Carnegie Hall.
