Ghost Song is a portrait of a city of Houston, Texas, through the story of totally opposed characters. While the Hurricane Harvey looms, OMB Bloodbath, mentee and friend of George Floyd and rapper native of the Third Ward, a home to predominantly African-American community, buries her friend Kenny Lou. Will comes from a wealthy neighbourhood, but he wanders the streets as he struggles with his addictions and family demons. These characters share the same city but almost never cross, and they live in two worlds dramatically disconnected from each other. Yet, the things they share are the same sky and music - they live for music and reveal themselves in the best way thanks to her.
