In 1956 in a small town in East Texas, the mother of an adolescent girl seeks to keep her dreams of a singing career alive. Her fantasies are disrupted by her cantankerous landlady and her tough talking, practical sister. The arrival of a pretty, young music teacher ignites the daughter's singing ambitions and brings mother and daughter into conflict. The child's only ally is her elderly neighbor, a whimsical spinster who fancies herself to be a painter. Forced to deal with one reality after another including a tornado the mother finally grow up and abandons her visions of a dream existence in favor of establishing a favorable future for her daughter.
