Plot Synopsis

Based on the novel by Erika Ellis. After winning a high profile case, an African American attorney becomes a hot-shot lawyer and moves his family out of their mixed lower middle class town and into the posh, WASPy enclave of Greenwich, Conn. While he has a sense of pride for "making it" he becomes alarmed when a black lottery winner moves in next door. He believes that his family will be blamed for this "black invasion" and that his anticipated appointment to the State Supreme Court is at stake.
