The story of their families is the story of America.

From executive producer Linda Obst (Contact, Sleepless in Seattle) comes an epic blend of music, drama and real-life events that bring the decade's most explosive events to life. Two American families - one white, one black - are torn apart by the war in Vietnam and the war in the streets. Only their love for each other can bring them back together.
