It's 1929, on the eve of the Great Depression, and America is on the precipice of big change with a looming financial crisis. In the small town of Harrison, Texas, the residents of a local boarding house deal with numerous dilemmas, both large and small. Quarrels arise between estranged husbands and wives, the future of a railroad engineer hangs in the balance, and the town is turned upside down with the coming of the 'talkies' to the local movie theatre. It's the end of an era, and a job, for the woman who plays live music for the films. When the silver screen is no longer silent, who will speak up?
