It is still possible to attend a show by the famous Platters, although the original members of this American rhythm-and-blues band have all passed away. Since the breakup of the band in the 1960s, there are many performers worldwide who sing the hit song Only You and claim to be a ‘Platter’. Like Gaynal Hodge from The Hague. Taking his story as a starting point, this documentary depicts a remarkable history featuring various ‘Platters’. A film about greed, identity and the love of music.
