Danny Glover is centre stage in John Sayles' charming, humorous and blues-soaked evocation of the 1950s American South. Honeydripper is a fading Alabama juke-joint, run by blues-loving Ty 'Pine Top' Purvis (Glover). He desperately needs a miracle to save the place and lure back the crowds, but will it be brought by the young guitar-playing nobody or, as he hopes, the elusive star Guitar Sam?
