The battle for the heart and mind of 17-year-old Ernestine is waged in a living room in Brooklyn in 1950. The contestants include the lively and glamorous Aunt Lily, Ernestine’s God-fearing father and a mysterious German refugee. As is Ernestine, the country is on the brink of transition. This coming of age tale evokes the poetry of change.

The cast features Mylika Davis, Lara Hughes, Kenyetta Lethridge, Rickie Peete and Marie-Francoise Theodore.
