The tone is reflective, sweet, thoughtful and at times full of sad or intense emotion. (Hint: Lives were lost. People died) elderly woman's voiceover:

For the price of a five cent ticket, Americans could sit in the dark for a few hours, forget their troubles...and escape (long pause) Everyone, except blacks.
In 1939, in the Depression Era South...The Jim Crow laws said separate but equal.
But Aaron and I had some other ideas.

Of course when a famous Hollywood actress came to town ...things got ...interesting
We thought we had it all under control.
