The American experience at the turn of the 20th century as told through the stories of three families from three different worlds, all contained within New York City. The first is an upper class Protestant family from New Rochelle. Second, the bustle of Harlem, where the African American community explores a new kind of music pioneered by a pianist named Coalhouse Walker Jr. Meanwhile, immigrants from all parts of the globe set out to seek better lives in the tenements of the lower east side.
