Cissy Spacek and Whoopi Goldberg star in this story set during the Montgomery bus boycott of 1955-1956, when Martin Luther King successfully led a long campaign to desegregate the city's transport. Caught in the political and racial issues are the (white) Thompsons and their (black) maid Odessa and her family. As Mrs Thompson is awakened to racial inequality, her husband becomes more racist, causing huge family pressures.
