Walter Whitney is a successful executive who resides in an upscale Southern California suburb. Like all of his friends and neighbors, Walter is white, and he is shocked when he learns he has a son he never knew about -- black teen Roger Porter (Denzel Washington). Despite his surprise, Walter welcomes Roger into his home; unfortunately, the less accepting Mrs. Whitney (Susan Saint James) boots both of them out of the house, and Walter's racist boss fires him, leaving him in a tough spot.
