This is a Romeo and Juliet, West Side, love story, set in the South. A story of forbidden love between black and white.
In the early 1970s the color of a person's skin was the first and most recognizable physical characteristic of an individual living in the Deep South, and it was understood in the society that black and white did not mix. How this young couple managed to survive the explosive racist emotions of those violent days is a tale that must be told! You cannot miss this! Indeed, these two young people never really expected to live to see this story to conclusion. What is truly amazing is the single fact that they managed to survive. The bullets missed their mark. The knives went awry. And the gangs could not discourage this warrior on a mission of love. It is a critical examination of American life and society in Texas. This is an inspiring tale!
This story chronicles the history of how two people in love came to be together and stay together--against all odds. The raw emotions of love are exposed as these two young people journeyed through triumphs and tragedies. There was violent opposition at every turn.
It was a test of will and fortitude. It is also a comedy that can only be appreciated now, in this day and age. It's a tale of overcoming the odds and winning. Moreover, we are the richer for it, for now we have this amazing story. This story is truly unbelievable, and yet, it happened.
