Aunt Ester, the 285-year-old fiery matriarch, welcomes into her home Solly Two Kings, who was born into slavery and scouted for the Union Army, and Citizen Barlow, a young man searching for a new life. Aunt Ester guides him on a soaring, lyrical journey of spiritual awakening to the City of Bones towards a healing over his guilt for the crime he has committed.
