If it were true that opposites attract, then Steve Miller and Sonja Knight were the perfect match.
The twenty-five year old rookie cop on the Los Angeles Police Department comes from a modest middleclass background and is the son of a racist police sergeant father. While twenty-nine year old, Sonja, was born to a wealthy African American family, practices law as a defense attorney, and her father is active in the NAACP.
When the two collide one evening at a report of a burglary in progress at Sonja and her roommate Chelsea's home, Steve falls head over heels in love with the beautiful lawyer.
They begin a tumultuous affair laden with landmines and hurdles. In the end can the two unite and become committed to each other? Or will they allow the outside world to tear them apart?
