Filmed over the course of a decade, Quest tells the sprawling story of North Philadelphia's Rainey family: patriarch Christopher, aka "Quest"; matriarch Christine'a, aka "Ma Quest"; and their two children, all swimming against the tide of crime and strife engulfing their inner-city neighborhood, offering their home music studio as an oasis for locals to use as a creative outlet for their daily strife. An incredible portrait of a decade's worth of joy and sorrow endured by a family fueled by hope and love, Quest is a quintessential American portrait.
