In the summer of 1973, twenty-year-old Helen Harvey is desperate to escape the dull, repetitive life of a farmer's daughter. She is pretty, smart, and longs for something more, but what else is a young, black woman to do but marry, have children and remain oblivious to the rest of the world? Helen packs her Kansas bags and heads west to California. She accepts a domestic position in the home of the most prestigious film producer in town. Helen is devastated after a careless sexual encounter with a white, married actor leaves her pregnant and alone. Val Robinson Geller, the elegant, black wife of Academy Award winner Mike Geller, agrees to adopt Helen's child as she is unable to have one of her own. They are two beautiful, intelligent black women, trapped in white Hollywood's clinging web of lies, dirty secrets and endless deceptions.
