In early 1970’s Harlem, nineteen-year old Tish is in love with young sculptor and father of her unborn child Fonny. When Fonny is falsely accused of rape and imprisoned Tish and their families set out to clear his name before the baby is born. As they face an uncertain future, the young lovers experience a kaleidoscope of emotions – affection, despair, and hope – in a love story that evokes the blues in a place where passion, prejudice and sadness are inevitably intertwined.
