Description: In this drama that was a UCLA student thesis expanded to feature length, two African-Americans come from Tennessee to Los Angeles.

The two split up after he gets involved in a strike. She goes to school but ends up laid off from a good paying job. Later the two meet again. Both are surprised by the great changes in their lives since they have been apart.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
