La vida de Ray Charles es una alternancia de triunfos y fracasos personales que se suceden a lo largo de una dilatada carrera en el mundo del espectáculo. Ray era un hombre capaz de fundir con enorme eficacia los más diversos estilos musicales: el jazz, el rhythm & blues, el rock & roll, el gospel y el country. La película se centra en el período más explosivo de la carrera de Charles, que comienza cuando este joven negro y ciego se sube solo a un autobús en Florida y cruza el país para ir a parar a la floreciente escena jazzística de Seattle. Cuando es descubierto por Atlantic Records, empieza su imparable ascenso hacia la fama, pero también su adicción a las drogas y a las mujeres. Al mismo tiempo, tendrá que superar graves traumas infantiles como la muerte de su hermano George y la pérdida de la vista a partir de los cinco años, hechos que marcan para siempre su vida y su música.
