In 1977, as the miniseries “Roots” hits the airwaves, two women are inspired to try and integrate their small Southern town. In a place where there are still “right” and “wrong” sides of the tracks, these two young women — one white, one black — forge an unlikely friendship that sparks a journey of independence and self-discovery and ultimately results in the creation of the perfect hairdo. Starring Maggie Grace, Uzo Aduba, Elizabeth McGovern, Adam Brody, and Cicely Tyson.
