When a white driver critically injures a black bicyclist, the residents in a tense, gentrifying South Philadelphia neighborhood can’t decide whether to unite, hide, or explode. Ms. Rose wrestles with ways to effectively organize the community and still be true to the neighborhood she fears may have outgrown her. Carol Jones, the mother of the bicyclist, is drawn back to the neighborhood she fled years ago for posh suburbia and finds roots deeper than she realized.  Michael, the driver and recent home owner in the neighborhood, must conquer his guilt over the accident while struggling with personal betrayal.  By allowing strangers to help him, he discovers ties he didn't know he deserved. Their intersecting lives test the neighbors — established and new — in ways they never expected.
