Birdie Jennings dreams of a life beyond her small town of Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. Her life changes when she meets Jimmy Walker. But some short years after they marry, Jimmy disappears, leaving Birdie alone with their two toddlers. Out of money and options, Birdie moves back home. Just as she's settling into her new life, Birdie witnesses a murder and is urged to flee Mt. Sterling. With nothing but a suitcase and a note about a house in Cincinnati promised to Jimmy, she travels to the city, determined to put her life back together. Plunged into the bustling jazz scene, Birdie learns that finding her place among criminals and saints is tough - but she is tougher.
