This intense family drama follows Birdy Warlo, a middle-aged African-American piano teacher, and her student James Morris, a white tatted formerly convicted gang member. Diametrically different physical differences aside, it is evident that Birdy and James have an endearing love and joviality throughout their heated piano lesson. However, when a woman from Birdy’s past appears unannounced, her relationship with James grows stronger as they both teach each other life lessons.
