This haunting drama consists of inter locking monologues by a black woman, her disturbed teenaged son, and Sharon, a white social worker. Dawn is a streetwise super mom with four kids.

At first, Dawn resists Sharon's help. Gradually the two women become friends united in a common goal: to save Frankie.
