Set against the backdrop of the renown and popular downtown Beale Street; the Soul of Memphis, complete with it black-owned shops, stores and carnival atmosphere coupled with an indulgent nightlife that seduced many to engage in their clandestine vices.
Clay Carter and Turner Davis are first cousins. Born in the lower Mississippi Delta, as teens they hopped a train aiming to leave the deceptive, one-sided sharecropping system in search of a better life. Chicago was the goal but 240 miles from Greenville, MS was as far as they made it. Memphis, Shelby County, TN. Hustlers by nature, hanging out on Beale became second nature to their enterprising personalities. As they try to find redemption, secrets, past and present threaten to destroy them and those they love most.
