The Wind and the Breeze
Sam, the legendary, undisputed greatest emcee in Rockford, Ill., plans to rest on his laurels all winter and, if possible, stake out an early spot to watch the Independence Day fireworks — but his closest mentees and their outsize dreams challenge him to a battle he can't win. ‘The Wind and the Breeze’ explores the politics of place, the unspoken expectations of friendship and what happens when we choose to stand our ground on shifting sands.
