Characters:
Dede Fleming; Greg Harris; Professor Stern
Synopsis:
Dede Fleming had spent her life working with Professor Stern to become a concert violinist and was at the peak of her success. Still, she felt that no matter what she played, her audience was "two shakes from being wax mummies". After a recent performance, Greg Harris, a young composer, approached her for criticism. When she suggested he go to Professor Stern, he angrily told her that few remember their humble beginnings. Taken aback, she listened to his music and decided to help him. As they worked side by side, they became closer and closer. Realizing that she was ignoring her work, Stern sent Dede on a two-month tour, and immediately upon her return she ran to Greg. After a week in the country, she returned for another performance and played horribly. Stern belittled her and told her she needed to choose. And she did. She was going to break it off. But when she went to Greg's pitiful apartment, he played the nocturne he had written for her, and told her it had been accepted for performance by the philharmonic. At that performance, Dede and Greg performed together, playing the music of their love.

Characters:
Marcy Parsons; Jim; Fred
Synopsis:
"Okies" was another name for American gypsies; migrant workers who followed the crops. That was what the Parsons family did, and Marcy hated that life even though Jim, her friend since childhood, encouraged her to dream. Finally, it happened. Her family had scrimped and saved to the point where they could buy a house of their own, and Marcy could go to school. But there, everyone treated her like a dumb farm girl wearing odd clothes. When she decided to go to a dance, many were simply cruel to her until Fred stood up for her. He was the only one that had not looked down on her and she thought that she had finally escaped being an Okie. But then, Jim arrived to live with her family, reminding her of her roots. She ran to Fred only to find that he had no intention of marrying "a little farm girl" and taking her away. Disappointed, she returned home to find Jim, loving, comforting Jim, and realized that it is his love that will finally set her free.
