Chuck and Mary Robinson, a liberal white couple have resolved to face whatever problems may result, and stand firm in their principles in deciding to sell their house to Bill and Vicky Gunther, an affluent black couple. Gradually but inexorably, unspoken tensions emerge, the facade of self conscious political correctness is stripped away, and all pretense vanishes – on both sides – leaving a wreckage of good intentions.
