Diahann Carroll was nominated for an Oscar for her moving performance as a single mother in Harlem relying on welfare to feed her six children. Hesitant to add romance to her list of things to juggle, she nevertheless finds herself falling for charming garbage man James Earl Jones. At once a poignant look at the complexities of motherhood and a clear-sighted examination of the racial and gender biases inherent in the social system.

A film by John Berry
