The Ballad of Little Jo tells the story of a young woman who leaves her family and the world she knows for the uncharted territory of the American West at the end of the 19th century. In the dangerous world of the mining camp, Josephine Monaghan gains protection by disguising herself as a man and lives for a decade as "Little Jo" — terrified of revealing herself but longing to be known. With a soaring and vibrant musical score, Little Jo captures the beauty and danger of the American West and one woman's remarkable journey through a wilderness of prejudice and fear.
