Aspiring actress Lora Meredith meets Annie Johnson a homeless black woman at Coney Island and soon they share a tiny apartment. Each woman has an intolerable daughter, though Annie&#39s little girl Sarah Jane, is by far the worse. Neurotic and obnoxious, Sarah Jane doesn&#39t like being black; since she&#39s light-skinned (her father was practically white), she spends the rest of the film passing as white, much to her mother&#39s heartache and shame. Lora, meanwhile, virtually ignores her own daughter in a single-minded quest for stardom.
