Carmelita Robertson is an African Nova Scotian who meets Dr. Ruth Holmes Whitehead, a Caucasian native from South Carolina. Their realizations about the past take an unexpected turn with the suspicion that perhaps Whitehead's family had owned some of Robertson's ancestors as slaves. Traveling back to the site of the old slave plantation, the two women are forced to confront issues of friendship through the lens of race.
