Synopsis
A story of family, community, music and tradition set against the backdrop of Branson, Missouri, a remote Ozark Mountain town of just over ten thousand residents. One of the biggest tourist destinations in the US, it is visited by more than seven million people a year. At the heart of Branson’s appeal are the more than one hundred stage shows running at a given time that have earned the town the distinction “live music capital of the world.”

The traditional, family-style entertainment — no cussing, no nudity, no gambling, healthy doses of gospel, and respect for veterans — appeals to an audience with conservative values. As we follow four performing families over five years, we see Branson — like the rest of the country — face economic uncertainty and changes in attitudes on social issues. Their stories form a composite both of Branson and of contemporary America.
