Sometimes basketball is the only way out. Even for a girl. Even in the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.
Inspired by the flourishing and the decline of high school girls' basketball teams in the 1930s rural Midwest, The Tall Girls asks: who can afford the luxury of play? And what is the cost of childhood? Featuring a strong ensemble of female characters, The Tall Girls examines issues of class and gender amidst the historic 1930s Dust Bowl.
