Francie lives with her mother and brother in rural Alabama, where all three work and wait. Francie's father is trying to get settled in Chicago so he can move his family up North. Unfortunately, he's made promises he hasn't kept, and Francie painfully learns that her dreams of starting junior high school in an integrated urban classroom will go unfulfilled. Amid the day-to-day grind of working for wealthy white folks on the other side of town, Francie becomes involved in helping a falsely accused young black man escape arrest - a brace gesture, but one that puts the entire black community in danger.
