display_description Sid, a former member of a popular 1930s German American jazz band which was forbidden by the Nazis to play live, returns to Berlin in 1992 to attend the screening of a documentary about his band mate Hieronymus Falk, who was arrested by the Gestapo in a Paris cafe after the men escaped from Germany and is considered a jazz legend, and finally breaks his silence about what he witnessed the day Hieronymus was taken into custody, while also describing the pre-war music scene in Germany.
