Perry’s tale of forbidden love and family drama unravels 40 years of secrets and lies against a soundtrack of juke joint blues in the Deep South.

The film features an original song performed by Ruth B., songs arranged and produced by multi-Grammy award-winning and two-time Academy Award nominee Terence Blanchard, music by Aaron Zigman and choreography by the legendary Debbie Allen.
