When a gifted black music student at the University of Texas is cast in an opera opposite a white male classmate, she is thrust into a civil rights storm that changes her life forever. Expelled from the cast amidst a backlash from members of the Texas legislature, this small-town girl, whose voice and spirit stem from her roots in East Texas, emerges as an internationally celebrated mezzo-soprano and headlines on stages around the world.

Presented by the Texas Independent Film Network, a statewide network of film societies, independent theaters, and universities united for the purpose of screening Texas-made independent film.
