Based on a true story, set in Tupelo, Mississippi in 1964:
Having contracted polio at 22 while pregnant, Paige Dunn delivers her baby from an iron lung. Even though her husband divorces her shortly thereafter, Paige insists on raising her daughter Diana. Able to move only her head, Paige requires round-the clock nursing care, but in comparison to many of the petty small town characters, lives a life fuller than most. Now 13, Diana is sharing her mother's care with no-nonsense African-American day worker Peacie. But when Peacie's boyfriend, LaRue, ventures down the perilous path of helping register black voters during Freedom Summer, trouble follows and nearly breaks all of them apart.
