In 1962, Lorraine Hansberry invites Jimmy Baldwin to her country house, Chitterling Heights, for the weekend. Baldwin brings a not-quite-innocent Southern protegee named Laura Lee, and Hansberry is accompanied by the husband she's in the process of divorcing. The afternoon's minor skirmishes escalate that evening, when they read aloud Hansberry's newest work-in-progress and Baldwin attacks its relevance. The two great writers and their companions find themselves struggling with the roles of race, class, and literature in a turbulent American era.
