"Vision Quest" (working title) captures the remarkable story and amazing sound of Vision Quest, an all-blind, Chicago-based rhythm and blues band. Focusing on founder/director, Carl Crawford, and his co-lead vocalist, Vickie Johnson-Gore, the film chronicles a year in the life of the eight-piece band, following them at home, on the road, and at rehearsals, as they prepare to take the stage in a climactic show at a large outdoor music festival.  A poignant, honest, and often funny look at the challenges the band faces along the way, "Vision Quest" is about their quest to share the truth as they see it: that once you lock into the groove, hearing is believing.
