It's June of 1937, and the Panama Limited Pullman Train is speeding from Chicago to New Orleans on the night of the Joe Louis/James Braddock world heavyweight championship. Three generations of Sykes men-African American train porters-wrestle with ghosts of the past and dreams for the future as they eagerly await word of the Brown Bomber's victory.
