Summary
In 1950s rural Alabama, Tyrone "Pine Top" Purvis, the owner of the Honeydripper Lounge, is deep in debt fighting a rival club's popularity. Desperate to stay open, Tyrone decides to bet on famous talent, laying off his regular performers and giving his last cash to bring in the popular Guitar Sam, for a one-night-only gig. But when the train arrives and Guitar Sam is nowhere to be found, Tyrone finds himself facing even longer odds yet
