Mary Steenburgen narrates this quiet but powerful film from the point of view of a young white girl recollecting the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955. Whoopi Goldberg plays Odessa Carter, a maid working in the house of Miriam Thompson, played by Sissy Spacek. With the start of a secret car-pool, threats from the white establishment, including Spacek's husband Norman (played by Dwight Schultz), threaten these two woman during a most tumultuous time in American history.
