Synopsis: Micah Winters always knew that she was different. It was the pigment of her skin and the texture of her hair that revealed that she was a woman from biracial parents. For five decades, Micahâs African American mother has remained silent about Micahâs estranged father (Sidney Irving). It is not until after Sidney Irvingâs death that Micah learns that she is the daughter of the legendary novelist and screenwriter. Now with her motherâs memory fading away from Alzheimerâs disease, Micah can only rely on a novel that was written from her father years ago to understand her parents past during the time of segregation in the United States. Micahâs once simple life is not so simple anymore as she tries to make sense of an unfamiliar world as she inherits her fatherâs wealth and private past. With an abandoned heart, Micah must forgive the past in order to discover who she really is.
