Make It Soul

Chicago, winter 1965. The Regal Theater welcomes James Brown and Solomon Burke, two of the most important figures in Soul Music. Back stage, tensions are certainly rising between The King of Rock and Soul and The Soul Brother number one. But in 60s America, those two singers know their music has unsuspected abilities.
