To find someone to take care of her young daughter, Billie, when she's gone. On the other side of town, Cassie Malone is an outspoken housewife insulated by her wealth and privileged white society. Recently widowed and childless, Betty Jewel's advert speaks to her own deep longing for a child. With racial tension in the South brewing, any bond forged between the two women and Billie will need to be as deep as it is forbidden.
