After committing an unforgivable crime and doomed to surrender his freedom, Leroy is granted one final wish: a chance to make amends with his long lost lover, Berta. Their reunion swells from a quarrelsome beginning to an impassioned consummation of their love. Set in the 1920s, Angelica Chéri’s riveting tale, inspired by the legendary prison song, poses the question – can Leroy and Berta’s bond survive the fate that awaits them?
“I remembers every inch ‘a you. Been achin’ for you.”
