"Seven Guitars" brings a post-war Pittsburgh and us into the world of the 1940's. Sort through the plight of the Black American men who fought and died in World War II, who now return home to find they must confront the same inequities and injustices they'd faced before they left. View life through the eyes of blues singer, Floyd "Schoolboy" Barton when he returns from a 90 day stretch in the county jail with a recording contract and plans to take his woman and band to Chicago.
Buoyed by the great boxer, Joe Louis, Floyd is positive the world is ready for black heroes. But his environment and friend, Hedley are determined to have other plans for him.
