The setting is 1963, in Birmingham, Alabama. Martin Luther King, Jr., has come to town to confront segregation. Chris Wright, young, white, penniless and idealistic, arrives by Greyhound bus. He meets Dorcas Jones, young, black, cynical and committed. Their ideals clash, but events bind the two close together as they follow King to the apocalyptic encounter with the white establishment.
