The affluent African American LeVay family gathers at their Martha’s Vineyard home for the weekend, and brothers Kent and Flip have each brought his girlfriend home to meet the parents for the first time. Kent’s fiancée, Taylor, an academic whose absent father was a prominent author, struggles to fit into the LeVay’s upper-crust lifestyle. Kimber, on the other hand, a self-described WASP who works with inner-city school children, fits in more easily with the family. Joining these two couples are the demanding LeVay patriarch, Joe, and Cheryl, the daughter of the family’s longtime housekeeper. As the two newcomers butt heads over issues of race, class, and privilege, long-standing family tensions bubble under the surface and reach a boiling point when secrets are revealed. A must-see show!
