Plot

During the "prep" to the show, JESSE - the group's lead singer/guitarist - senses Dusty’s presence. This notion stays with him as he sings the title song: “See All Her Faces” and that’s when he decides to switch the order of songs throughout the show to use the lyrics from Dusty’s hits to court the green-eyed, white lady of soul back to Life and fulfill his wish to sing duets with her.

To his surprise, her SILHOUETTE and other images begin to pop up throughout the concert and at one point it quite literally responds by singing a verse to him from one of the songs. Meanwhile, his musician friends and backup girls know what JESSE has been trying to do and, of course, try to talk him out of it, but he is unmoved. So they decide to join forces with him to see if Dusty will actually appear.

Does she show up? Maybe you should buy a ticket and come see for yourself?
