In the 1950s, young Lewellen (Dakota Fanning) lives with her religious zealot Grammie (Piper Laurie) and alcoholic Daddy (David Morse) in rural Alabama. Lewellen finds comfort in her dreams of singing with her idol Elvis Presley (Ryan Pelton). Her best friend Buddy (Cody Hanford) promises her a ticket to an Elvis Presley show—if she will meet him at the watering hole. She goes to the watering hole, but Buddy betrays her, and Wooden's Boy (Christoph Sanders) rapes her, which changes her life. Now, with help from medicine man Charles (Aferno Omilami), Lewellen learns more about her beloved blues music and finds hope for the future.
