Movie Info

At the onset of World War II, a Southern, white, small-town couple -- attorney Temple Rayburn (James Woods) and his loving wife, Celia (Elizabeth McGovern) -- decide to take in Ben Tyler (Charles Mattocks), the mentally challenged African-American son of their deceased housekeeper. This act of kindness is extremely controversial in their heavily segregated community, and before long the Rayburns find themselves caught in a whirlwind of political and moral issues.
