Silvie Page, determined to escape the control and frustrations of her mother, has started a life of her own in New York. Still, her entangled and competitive relationship with her mother, Mimi, continues to haunt her. Moving back and forth in time, Another Song About the King explores how the fantasies and experiences of one generation have an impact on the lives of another. Frustrated by her life as a housewife in the '60s, Mimi names her daughter "Silvie", the closest anagram she can find for Elvis. Caught up in a fantasy world of the King and fame, Mimi remains mired in unfulfilled artistic ambitions and the need to dominate her family. As Silvie begins to free herself from Mimi, a family crisis draws her back.
