Pittsburgh, 1995. The son of a black father he's never known and a white mother he sometimes wishes he didn't, twenty-two-year-old Bobby Saraceno is passing for white.

Bobby's disparate worlds collide when his and Aaron's reunion is interrupted by a confrontation where Bobby witnesses Aaron assault a young black man with a brick. Fearing for his safety and his freedom, Bobby must keep his secret from Aaron and conceal his unwitting involvement in the hate crime from the police.
