Using music as an integral part of the storytelling, Blue spans nearly twenty years in the life of the affluent Africa-American Clark family in rural South Carolinan

Events are seen through the eyes of of the eldest son Reuben, who evolves from a pre-teen trumpet player into an adult artist. His mother, a relentless chic matriarch with dark secrets who is out of place in her provincial surroundings holds court at family gatherings

She lays out grandiose plans for her two sons while the mesmerizing music of jazz singer Blue Williams adds a unique dimension. This humorous family portrait abounds with tenderness, acceptance and the search for unconditional love while introducing the audiences to an African-American family the likes of which is seldom portrayed on stage or screen
