Patricia Murphy is a young woman from Placentia, Newfoundland who spends her last $60 opening a Tea Room in Brooklyn in the wake of the Stock Market Crash of 1929.
With her small stature and a big dream, Patricia doesn’t seem to realize that she is operating in a man’s world at the start of the Great Depression. She just wants to get to a second night. Buck Jones is a reporter with the Brooklyn Eagle who takes a particular interest in Patricia’s plans for success.
Join Buck as he recounts that first night-Opening night at the Candlelight.
