Set in New York 2018
A recently widowed white book editor invites a younger black writer to her apartment, only to find that a night of tenderness and passion turns into a brutal morning-after when he threatens to reveal a dark secret about her past unless she publishes his debut novel.
Will the young writer succeed in his blackmail attempt and claim his reparations for a life of perceived racial injustice, or will she force his hand and seize her own emotional reparations.
