Inspired by true events, While the Trees Sleep tells the story of two women: Viola, a Detroit housewife with an unrelenting desire to participate in the equality movement finding its voice in the South, and Dorothy, an Alabama nurse married to a man twisted with pressures from the KKK and the FBI.
It's summer 1965, and in two days Viola will be dead. Dorothy's husband will find himself complicit in one of the most heinous, but soon forgotten, murders of the American Civil Rights Movement, and Dorothy will be left standing in the wake.
But not today. Today, Dorothy gets ready for work, and Viola starts her journey South. The trees rustle in warning, the cicadas start their scream cycles, and the eye of the storm sits hot and calm.
