Alberta lives on Chicago’s South Side with her old-fashioned mother, Weedy. Their relationship is tested when a mysterious street singer comes searching for a woman he used to know, and Alberta must confront the feelings she’s long been suppressing. An award-winning drama, The Sty of the Blind Pig captures the sense of black consciousness in America on the cusp of the civil rights movement.
