THESE ARE THE NIGHTLANDS.
ENORMOUS BLUEPURPLE SKY.
AND I’M
IN IT.

From under her auburn beehive wig, Netta Klein dreams of a life beyond Northeast Philadelphia routine.  Down on Columbia Avenue, the stars talk and we listen… Ivy Silver’s your host on community-access radio.  It’s August, 1964.  And the sparks that fly between two women are about to ignite an entire city.
