Dr. Selene Slater-Bernaud, also known as Slim, teaches a class scrutinizing Shakespeare's sonnets titled "The Poetics of Race...The Politics of Beauty." After years in a caring interracial marriage, she finds herself in love with a female student. Grappling with personal demons that threaten to destroy her, Slim's past and present collide as she confronts the poetry and politics of her heart.
