In ACAPPELLA, a disillusioned teen idol from a small southern town returns home on the eve of the centennial celebration and realizes he's left more behind than gospel and grits. But is what Jeremiah feels love or just nostalgia? His return upends the town. Aunt Leona takes advantage and shines a light on her veteran gospel group as they put a new spin on ole time gospel. She comforts Jeremiah saying, "You have to make your own music, sing your own song." The message of this romantic comedy is reflected in the style of its music - acappella.
