For Becky who left the Midwest to get away from a life that, following her father’s death, had become dreary and monotonous. We meet her just as she arrives on the doorsteps of Dylan’s building. Serendipitously, she moves into the spare bedroom of Dylan’s apartment in which his grandfather had lived since the Harlem Renaissance. Dylan’s romanticized love for the neighborhood is a testament to the relationships of his youth and his love of music. He mourns and yearns for his Harlem — simultaneously grieving for his Grandfather. Together, Becky and Dylan learn to move on from the pain of loss and embrace a new life.
