It's a film about a woman whose drive to pursue the things she believes in leads her on an unexpected path to self discovery. It is 1907 and musicologist Lily Penleric, Ph.D., has just been denied a promotion in the male-dominated world of her university. Frustrated and determined to get academic recognition, she heads to Appalachia with a recording device and writing materials.
