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.
