Eight actor-musicians tell the story of Ace Baker, who spends the first decade of his life fatherless. At 12 years old, a phone call reveals that his “deceased” Grandpa Beau has been alive all his life, and his Mama knew. Family secrets unravel as Ace rushes to make up for the lost time with a man who changes his life, and puts a guitar in his hand.
