This story weaves together love, redemption and the pursuit of dreams. It all begins just after the poignant funeral of Floyd 'Schoolboy' Barton, a man whose life was tragically cut short, but whose legacy plays on throughout the streets of Pittsburgh.
As we journey back in time, we find ourselves in the fateful week leading up to Floyd's untimely demise. Freshly released from jail, he finds himself propelled to stardom overnight, all thanks to his mesmerizing record 'That's All Right.' With newfound fame burning in his heart, Floyd returns to Pittsburgh on a mission to win back the heart of his old love, Vera.
