The play follows a photographer, Alvin Moseby from Shiloh, Tennessee in the 1930's to New York City in the 1950's. Once a photographer of despicable acts in the name of work during the depression, in New York City he finds his true artistic calling taking pictures of legendary jazz musicians, and also meets the love of his life. But, the infamous box of pictures from his past follows his every step and haunts his every move.
