A northeast town.
The action alternates between Stacey's home and his office. It's 1968. Stacey
Cooper, a successful Afro-American neuro-surgeon married to Jennifer, a white
woman, is cleared of molesting a young patient, when it's discovered that the
accusation was false and racially motivated. Stacey is deeply shaken by the
ordeal and plans to join the Black Panther movement in Burbank, led by Jeremiah
Jones. Margaret Kimberley, Stacey's white mother-in-law, tries to encourage the
move, hoping to break up her daughter's marriage which has alienated Jennifer
from the family and broken the father's heart. Jennifer, meanwhile, does her
best to save her marriage.
