For many tourists and immigrants, the USA still represents a land of opportunity where dreams come to life. And yet, the reality doesn’t always live up to these blissful expectations.

A Japanese trumpet player flies to New York City for an orchestra performance. With little to no knowledge of English, he finds himself lost and ends up having a hellish night in Brooklyn.

TRUMPET is a beautifully surreal, fish-out-of-water odyssey that culminates in a wonderful jazz trumpet performance by actor, and professional trumpet player, Mao Soné.
