The story of a love affair between two Black Americans from very different worlds. Jadine is a black fashion model with a white patron. Son is a black fugitive who represents all she loathes and desires. Their story plays out from the Caribbean to Manhattan to the deep South, examining the obligation and betrayal between blacks and whites, masters and servants, and men and women.
