What started out as a plot to end a family rivalry turned into so much more. The McKinneys and the Simmons have had eyes filled with contempt turned on each other for years, down to the birth of Scott and Teresa. The pair became two friends destined to become lovers despite their family disputes and a slight complexion disparity. Scott is white and Teresa is black. They both knew there would always be a line of division between them. No matter how close they became. They begin to wonder how much they can close that gap, but the closer they get, the more their surroundings become eruptive and violent. What did they expect? They were lived in one of the most explosive places in America: Birmingham, Alabama; during a dark period of history known to many as the Civil Rights Movement. Scott and Teresa have a lot to learn about love, hardships, and sacrifice. But how can their relationship survive when all that is around them is hatred?
