Two women, black and white, in 1955 Montgomery Alabama, must decide what they are going to do in response to the famous bus boycott lead by Martin Luther King.
The Thompson home in the movie is located on Bankhead Avenue, in the Old Cloverdale neighborhood in Montgomery.
Miss Thompson, I don't want your children to grow up scared of mine.
Miriam Thompson: It's just that a lot of the whites are scared. I'm a little scared.
Odessa Cotter: We're all scared. What's scarin' you Miss Thompson, who you are, or what Mr. Thompson wants you to be?

Later, when Mrs. Thompson is angrily calling the police, she says "Tell Clyde Sellers that one of his policeman threw my 9-year-old daughter out of Oak Park" when talking to the secretary.
