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
