The creative euphoria of the Harlem Renaissance has given way to the harsher realities of the Great Depression as a handful of friends navigate high times and dire challenges. Guy dreams of designing gowns for and sipping champagne with Josephine Baker in Paris. In the meantime he keeps his best friend, Angel, as close to fabulous as their limited budgets will allow. Dumped by her gangster boyfriend, Angel has her eye on a kind widower looking to fill the hole in his heart. Characters live for love and art and hopefully cling to their dreams.
