In the 1820s two young brothers arrive as orphans in America, searching for a home. The Fiddle is their story of young love, marriage, childbirth–of families torn apart by the drama of the Civil War, the lawlessness of vigilantes, and the skirmishes of the Prohibition era. An old storyteller and a treasured hand-crafted fiddle spin the thread of continuity in this saga of four generations of a family spanning more than a century of history, tradition and legend.

Length: 40:00
