A light-skinned African American married to a white man unaware of her racial heritage, Clare has severed all ties to her past to become part of white, middle-class society. Clare's childhood friend, Irene Redfield, as light-skinned as Clare, has chosen to remain within the African American community.

A chance encounter forces both women to confront the lies they have told others and the secret fears they have buried within themselves.
