Set in rural Alabama in the late 1950s, Lewellen lives with her stern grandmother, Grammie, but spends most of her time with her much-adored Daddy in his dilapidated shack. Daddy's wild side is tempered by his beautiful but troubled girlfriend, Ellen, who has a mysterious history but calming influence on the lonely, young girl. Lewellen is deeply talented and finds comfort and safety, as well as a place to put her hurt and rage, in the music of Elvis Presley. When Elvis Presley comes to town for a concert, Lewellen is desperate to go but has no money for a ticket. In a naïve attempt to get a ticket, Lewellen falls into a compromising situation that steals her innocence and leaves her feeling even more alone and hopeless. It is up to the caretaker, Charles, to help Lewellen overcome the wounding of her spirit and save her soul. He teaches her to use the Blues to turn her tragedy into a gift-- bringing light out of darkness and hope out of adversity

MPAA rating: R; for a disturbing sexual assault of a young girl, and brief sexuality

DVD, widescreen (1.85:1) presentation; Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, Dolby Digital stereo
