Fifteen years after the mysterious death of Minette Swift, an assertive 19-year-old black girl enrolled as a scholarship student in an exclusive, mostly white liberal arts college near Philadelphia, her former roommate, Genna, begins an unofficial inquiry into her death. In reconstructing the girls' tumultuous freshman year at the college, Genna is lead also to reconstruct her life as the daughter of a famous "radical-hippie-lawyer" of the 1960s.
