Paris Blues in Harlem

Paris Blues in Harlem is a story of a young woman Paris and her attempts to assist her grandfather’s monetarily stressed out Harlem Jazz nightclub. Paris has a few hours to convince her rigid elder to accept the real estate agent’s briefcase with mounds of cash in exchange for his nightclub. But it’s not until she challenges his past and traditional habits that he struggles to let go. With only a few seconds left Paris must either commit to legacy or money.
