James Vincent, born in 1942, escapes his parents' turbulent marriage and attends law school in New York, where he moves up the social ladder as a promising young attorney. Meanwhile, Agnes Miller, a beautiful black woman on date with a handsome suitor, is pulled over by the police on a rural road in Georgia. The terrible moments that follow make her question her future and pivot her into a hasty marriage and new life in the Bronx. Illuminating more than six decades of sweeping change - from the struggle for civil rights to Obama's first year as President - James and Agnes's families will come together in unexpected, intimate and profoundly human ways.
