A strange, unstable singer drifts through the ancient oak trees, shattered windows, and burning spirituality of the mystical city of Memphis on a path of self-discovery. Although he has “God-given” talent, he resists the pull of the recording studio in favor of other pursuits. His journey, which is shown in fragments, drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of despair. Featuring an explosive performance and score from Willis Earl Beal, MEMPHIS is a film steeped in folklore, music, surrealism, and the abstract search for glory.
