Summary
Based on true events surrounding a light-skinned black family who pass for white in a New Hampshire town. Dr. Scott Carter is unable to secure a job as a physician because of his race so he decides "For one year of his life" to pass as a white man, but the one year becomes twenty. Eventually he and his family must confront the racism of the idyllic New Hampshire town he's served for decades. This film belongs to a forward-looking cluster of postwar films that declares war on society's ills, such as Boomerang, Pinky, and Gentleman's Agreement.
