Originally nominated for seven Tony Awards, this heartwarming drama is set in the 1920s and centers on Rubin Flood, a husband and father who loses his job. While searching for a new job, he must deal with his wife's unrealistic demands, his shy daughter, and bullies picking on his preteen son. Meanwhile, Rubin's close childhood friend is a person whom the rumor mill believes is a "loose woman." A tragic event brings all their fears into focus and teaches them to shed light on their fears to dispel them.
