With fierce wit and astonishing honesty, Blue explores the complexities of identity and trust behind the carefully constructed facade of the Clarks, a socially prominent family that is struggling with the legacy and pitfalls of their own good fortune. Infused with a searing jazz and soul score, Blue celebrates the love and spirit of a family coming to terms with itself.
