Shot on location in 1950s' NYC and independently filmed and produced, John Cassavetes' film represents a new kind of American filmmaking that is not influenced by Hollywood. The story involves interracial friendships shown through the lives of a Black trumpet player, Hugh (Hugh Hurd), and his younger sister and brother, Lelia (Lelia Goldoni) and Ben (Ben Carruthers), both of whom often pass for White–but not without heartbreak caused by prejudice.
