Boston|Nebraska tells the story of Georgiana, a woman who sacrificed her successful career as an opera singer at turn-of-the-century Boston to run away with the man of her dreams ultimately becoming trapped in Red Willow County, Nebraska, 50 miles from the nearest train station. Upon returning to a modern and bustling Boston twenty-five years later to settle the family estate, her nephew Clark takes her to a concert where she hears the new, lush, and impressionist sounds only to be forced back to Nebraska, back to the life she thought she wanted, with her husband, children, and failing farmland.
