Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A few years after Marvin Finn's family comes to Indianapolis from Kentucky, their hope of prosperity is shattered by the Great Depression. Their father, Thomas Marvin leaves to find work in Alabama, and a few months later their mother Fannie Finn is seriously injured. Marvin earns the name of Huck Finn, and he and his brother Tom run the streets of Indianapolis doing odd jobs, and selling junk hoping to rescue their mother and sisters from the grip of poverty and starvation. The brothers work hard to preserve their family unity, but perseverance and grit may not be enough to overcome all the obstacles life has in store for their family. Time reveals many secrets, and the past haunts the family as strange rumors of gun-battles, murder, and family intrigue circulate among the siblings. Huck only wants to know the truth, and yet the truth seems to be illusive. Throughout his quest for truth, he insists on his childhood identity. Over and over he tells his older sister Gracie, "Call me Huck...Huck Finn."
