Nearing the end of a long, restless Nashville summer, PEGGY ANN BARNES, once the fierce, beautiful matriarch of a proud southern tribe, lies dying in a hospice bed, all but lost to Alzheimer’s and cancer. In the years since her husband ALBERT BARNES took a gun and shot his brains out, Peggy has retreated from the world and her family. Her family thinks she’s incapable of speech and thought but Peggy, through her mind’s eye or God’s mind and eyes, sees and hears everything – things she cannot know, things she can’t see – she’s on her way to finally being free...all she has to do first is die.In crisis mode, Peggy’s three daughters LOIS, LANA and PAM are forced to come together in a time of turmoil and transition for each of them. We see the Barnes family torn apart by a series of exploding bombshells, forcing them to examine their personal value to themselves and each other.Lois, Lana and Pam discover that Peggy’s death confirms the unspoken but rumored Cherokee bloodline in the Barnes family and unlocks an inheritance of hundreds-of-millions of dollars, hidden until the death of Peggy, because she was a Barnes by marriage not by blood. Suddenly in possession of a vast family fortune, the Barnes sisters, reunited in sorrow, have the chance to live a life beyond their wildest dreams – or their worst nightmares.Set against the backdrop of some of the most tumultuous and traumatic events America has seen this century, CAROLINA RED leads our audience through a dramatic exploration of the sudden death of early-era Obama optimism, through the sad dissolution and triumphant expansion of these two extraordinary families as they fight through the frustrations of a polarized American society, the constant undercurrent of racial tension, the rise of domestic terrorism and the challenging ascent of Donald Trump.
