The Movie shows Socalled introducing funk trombone legend Fred Wesley (of James Brown fame) to klezmer music, while wowing Wesley with his knowledge of funk. When Dolgin comes across LP's from the 1950's by lounge pianist Irving Fields, he looks up 94-year-old Fields and inspires him to pen a new hit song.

Socalled defies category and refuses limitations. The "Socalled" Movie examines his energy from all angles and transmits the urgent creative spark to everyone watching: now's your chance - go out there and make something!
