This is the story of one brave family and their three children. Mildred and Richard fell in love and got married in Washington, D.C. When they moved back to their hometown in Virginia, they were arrested for violating that state's laws against interracial marriage. They refused to allow their children to get the message that their parents' love was wrong, and they fought the unfair law. Based on the children's book by Selina Alko.
