The search for the soul of America's hidden African roots takes Susannah an ethnomusicologist, to a Texas prison where she encounters Albertina "Pearl" Johnson.

Imprisoned for a crime of passion, Pearl is a living album of folk songs and spirituals passed down from her African American ancestors and their slave era past. She must decide whether to trust the white Susannah with her invaluable songs and with her only chance at freedom.

Pearl's stirring voice will touch your heart as will this story of complete strangers united by a common love.
