Set in early 1970s Harlem, “If Beale Street Could Talk” follows Tish, an expecting mother who is racing to prove her fiancé’s innocence. Her soon-to-be husband, Alonzo, was arrested for a crime he did not commit, putting a halt to their planned future. As they attempt to prove his innocence, Tish and Alonzo rely on love, trust and respect to endure this hard time.
