Uncle Jed's Barbershop

Based on the book by Margeree King Mitchell.

50-year-old Sarah Jean returns home from Detroit in the early 1970s in conflict with herself. Her city life and marriage are unfulfilling and she misses the hopeful quest for something 'more,' which growing up with her great uncle represented. When she inherits her deceased uncle's shop during the early 1970's, it is initially not as meaningful to her as it was to him. Nonetheless, the power of his dream inspires her to fulfill one of her own. She convinces the community to take on the challenge of building a 'Center For Dreams' on the same site as the shop.
