With a ticket, a suitcase, and a heart full of expectation, Violet Karl waits for a Greyhound bus in Spruce Pine, North Carolina. It is September 4, 1964, the early days of the Civil Rights Movement.
Violet has a large scar on her face due to a childhood accident, and having run out of all medical options, she now pins all her hopes on traveling for a miracle cure from a famous TV preacher.
On her journey of self-discovery, she meets two soldiers, Flick and Monty. As they travel on together, Violet learns the true meaning of beauty, love, and what it means to be an outsider.
Based on The Ugliest Pilgrim By Doris Betts, Violet takes a musical approach to the timeless topics of beauty and self-image, and transports audiences through number of styles, from gospel and bluegrass to Memphis blues.
