It’s the summer of 1967, and the songs of Motown are breaking records and breaking barriers. Chelle and her brother, Lank, are running an unlicensed after-hours joint out of their basement—risky business—especially during a brutal police crackdown that has set off riots throughout the city. When Lank offers refuge to a mysterious stranger, he and Chelle clash. Pent-up emotions erupt, and they must navigate the chaos both outside and within. “Mind-blowing” raves the Huffington Post; “Morisseau is a direct heir to Hansberry, Williams, and Wilson. You feel the pulse and vibrations of her characters.”
