Chicago, 1963. As four women gather regularly to work on their poker faces and enjoy benefits of being members of an elite, black-owned, country club, the world around them grapples with the legality of segregation. Although Bombingham, Alabama is over six hundred miles away, the impact its of race relations, is far reaching, forcing even affluent Northerners to ask themselves, when do you decide to do something courageous?
