This plight encompasses dreams accomplished and dreams deferred, racial discrimination inside and outside of the African American race, the importance of love and family and growth both internal and external.

PARENTAL ADVISORY: Strong Language.

Described by critics as having “the zip and zingy humor of classic television situation comedy and the absorbing narrative propulsion of a juicy soap opera,” and recently a movie starring Meryl Streep, this intense drama follows an Oklahoma family as they struggle with addiction, sickness, and their own histories while still managing to find the humor in life.
