A music-loving mixed-race couple struggles to survive during the early Civil Rights era in Memphis. What happens when a 1950's Memphis DJ with white listeners decides to play African-American music? Is Memphis ready for it? Is America? The story was inspired by the legendary DJ Dewey Phillips and the music that became known as "rock 'n' roll".
