Accidentally blinded by her prostitute mother Rose-Ann at the age of five, Selina D'Arcey spends the next 13 years confined in the tiny Los Angeles apartment that they share with "Ole Pa", Selina's grandfather. One afternoon at the local park, Selina meets Gordon Ralfe, a thoughtful young office worker whose kind-hearted treatment of her results in her falling in love with him, unaware that he is black. They continue to meet in the park every afternoon and he teaches her how to get along in the city. But when the cruel, domineering Rose-Ann learns of their relationship, she forbids her to have anything more to do with him because he is black. Selina continues to meet Gordon despite Rose-Ann's fury, who is determined to end the relationship for good. Written by

When Selina reveals her sexual assault (at the age of 18-19) to Gordon we see her attacker and her struggle through her eyes, which is impossible because earlier she explains the cause of her blindness at the age of five. See more »
What the hell is the matter here? What are you trying to do to Selina?

Okay, you black-hearted bitch...
If you wanna fight...

I saw this movie when i was 13 . It shook my heart a lot . Well , i actually had forgotten the name of the movie and the stars . Until today when i was intentionally searching for it on the net . Its a good touching movie that will make you wonder .Why this has to happen? the background music is also good. Sidney Poiter acting was natural and touching. He really deserved an Oscar for this movie.
My favorite scene is that when Elizabeth cried on the rain. I don't know why i had the feeling of immense emotions at that scene. See it and enjoy WITH your tears!
Its a privilege to watch it.
