Mayday Mayday Tuesday

WHEN SHAWNEY'S MOTHER dies, he is taken by his mysterious uncle, who longs to recapture his past pop stardom. Across the city, a pregnant novelist seeks to uncover a mystery: is there a ghost in her new fixer-upper home, or is her husband having an affair? Next door, a wealthy couple struggles to keep up appearances while raising their troubled adopted child. Hiding out in a foreclosed condo, a sexy musicology student searches for a forgotten musician lost somewhere in America. When a long forgotten record album resurfaces in Chicago, these disparate lives will collide with devastating consequences.
