Summary
In the 1970s, Tom Spader is an attorney who is determined to end what he has dubbed "the colored man's losing streak." When his winning of a high-profile case thrusts him into the limelight, he decides to move his family out of their mixed lower-middle-class town and into the posh enclave of Greenwich, Connecticut. The upscale and uptight residents of Greenwich aren't sure how to deal with their new neighbors
