At the end of a sweltering summer shaped by the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy, race riots, and political protests, three Black coeds from New York City — Zelda, Veronica, and Daphne — pack into Veronica’s new convertible, bound for Atlanta and their last year at Spelman College. It is the beginning of a journey that will change their lives irrevocably. Because they are going their separate ways after graduation, they intend to make lasting memories on this special trip. But when the car breaks down in Georgia, they are caught up in a racially hostile situation that leaves a white person dead and one of the girls holding the gun.
