“He grew up to be a man whose sighs and slumps replaced sentences. Is that gonna be me?”

Days after his father's passing, English teacher Yusuf discovers a dusty mixtape that changes everything he knew about a man who barely spoke.

Turns out, Mustafa spent the '90s rapping about pretty girls and Kilburn life, plotting dreams of superstardom with his best friend Omar. How did this passionate wordsmith become a silent statue?

Yusuf's mourning is overtaken by a journey into the past. Threaded together by Omar's thumping beats and his father's bars, Yusuf uncovers secrets that turn his world upside-down.
