    Annie McDee, alone after the disintegration of her long-term relationship and trapped in a dead-end job, is searching for a present for her unsuitable lover in a neglected secondhand shop. Within the jumble of junk and tack, a grimy painting catches her eye. Leaving the store with the picture after spending her meagre savings, she prepares an elaborate dinner for two - only to be stood up, the gift gathering dust on her mantelpiece.

    She seemed to have it all: children, a handsome husband and a trust fund. But in the early 1950s Nica Rotschild heard 'Round Midnight' by the jazz legend Thelonious Monk; the music overtook her like a magic spell, and she abandoned her marriage to go and find him. She was shunned by society but the musicians gave her friendship. She gave them material and emotional support; her convertible Bentley was a familiar sight outside the clubs, her notoriety was sealed when Charlie Parker died in her apartment.
