A sweeping tale of forbidden romance and drama, set in the autumn of 1941 as World War II rages across Europe, Sophie and the Rising Sun is a tender and moving story of two lovers in the small township of Salty Creek, South Carolina. Sophie Willis (Julianne Nicholson, Boardwalk Empire, Masters of Sex) is a humble artist who also sells seafood to the close-knit townsfolk. Her life is simple, but in her heart she yearns for more. When injured Japanese gentleman Grover Ohta (Takashi Yamaguchi, Letters from Iwo Jima) appears under mysterious circumstances, Sophie attends to him developing the foundations for an innocent friendship, born of their mutual love of art. But as their budding romance transforms into a forbidden courtship, society soon closes in on them both, as the war develops into a full blown attack on Pearl Harbor.

During the 1950s, young Jessica - Southern born but "being Yankee raised"--Spends Christmas in the small town of Galilee, Georgia, in the company of her Great-Aunt Kate, two other aunts, and a cousin. During this relatively brief visit, Jessica is subjected to full "Southernization" by the entire family. As one means of teaching Jessica "who she is," they tell her the family story of the J.P. Stevens Percale sheet, a singular present that has circulated back and forth between Great-Aunt Kate and her late husband's Aunt Frances in Dallas for over forty years. The story of how that tradition began and why it continued for so long provides Jessica with her greatest lesson in the crash-course of Southern culture and manners. Conversely, she is also initiated into the brutal burden of Southern history
