They’re on a “mission from God” to save the orphanage they were raised in, putting the band back together with some shenanigans along the way. It’s dark, they’re wearing sunglasses, and they’re running from the law—“Joliet” Jake and Elwood Blues will bring down whatever house they’re in with epic guests at every stop
