In Baby Driver, Baby (his actual name for most of the movie) suffers from tinnitus and uses music to block out the ringing. He uses his music to help perfectly time his getaways and epic driving to help a gang and a crime boss successfully steal from various locations. He changes his tune (HA puns) after he the waitress Debra and tries to go straight but is pulled back into a life of crime with threats to his new love.
