Storyline

Superstar singer-entertainer Dolly Parton stars in a dramatic role as a Texas Swing band singer caught in a violent, destructive relationship that leads to suspense and murder. Thiola Rayfield (Parton), known to her fans as "T", sings for a hard-working, close-knit band that makes its living on the road playing one bar after another. Then she meets and is swept off her feet by charming club owner Justice (Busey). However, "T" soon discovers that Justice has a dark side. He flies into violent rages, and soon members of the band cannot ignore the obvious signs that Justice has been abusing "T". They try to persuade "T" to leave Justice and go back on the road with the band. Justice won't let her go, setting off a series of plot twists that ultimately lead to murder and a shocking conclusion. Written by Tracey Searcy

Not a boring moment In this gripping Mystery.
6 January 2005 | by (Conn) – See all my reviews

Love little known movies, "who done its", great acting, the State of Texas? Then this is your movie. Dolly Parten gives an amazing, genuinely moving performance here and the acting by everyone as well as direction is fabulous. In addition, the "who done it aspects" to this movie were done extremely well, also. This is a movie I recommend any fan of the above mentioned items, check out, it's also rich in great cinematography and features one of Dolly's most well acted performances. Hopefully, this movie Is still findeable. I would rate it an 8 of 10-not a dull moment throughout and this is an extremely well done picture, if little known.
