HORN explores a moment in time in the off-stage life of Louis Armstrong – a man who wanted to be remembered by everybody, a man who everyone thought they knew, but is only known by the public image he left behind. This journey into the personal life of the grand public figure with a smile just as big digs deep into the psyche of Armstrong and carves away a small, intimate story few know about a man in 1950’s Corona amidst his marital issues at home, civil rights abroad, personal struggles within, and a longing to escape everything, if just for a moment, and blow his horn.
