Five friends find solace in their sisterly bond and take a musical and historical journey through the songs that were anthems marking social change, and that resonated with the thoughts and emotions of women all over the world. These five women come together after Grandma dies, to go over all her things. They must choose one song to sing at the Memorial that night.
While sifting through memories and confronting one another, songs are introduced going back to the time of the Black Blues singers all the way up to modern hip-hop. The music's trajectory goes from "Naming the Pain" (A Good Man is Hard to Find) to "Framing the Problem" (I am Not My Hair), to "Proclaiming the Joy" (Just Fine and Golden).
