Paul, a shy and introverted black boy, and Bernadette, a spirited and rebellious white girl, share a secret meeting spot by the riverside, where they escape the constraints of their divided society.
What begins as a platonic companionship soon flourishes into a love that defies the boundaries set by their community. Paul and Bernadette navigate the complexities of their relationship, finding solace and understanding in each other's arms. But their love is not without its challenges.
