Music inspires. Defines who we are. Taps and unlocks the essence of what makes us human.
Restless in small-town North Carolina, Dante Rose breathes rock and roll. Has done so since the early days. Since forming his garage band in high school. The band now broken and apart. The one he fights to put back together.
His devoted wife Penny, supporting every career move, hopes Dante can make something big happen for them. Something real. But she harbors a secret. The sacrifice she made when they were young. The choice almost nobody knew about. Not even Dante.
Lead guitarist Joe Mars knew. And now he’s the only thing standing in Dante’s way.
