In the 1820s two young brothers arrive as orphans in America, searching for a home. The Fiddle is their story of young love, marriage, childbirth - of families torn apart by the drama of the Civil War, the lawlessness of vigilantes and the skirmishes of the Prohibition era. An old storyteller and a treasured hand-crafted fiddle spin the thread of continuity in this saga of four generations of a family spanning more than a century of history, tradition and legend.
