Storyline

The disparity between generations, races, and genders (people who found themselves psychologically "a world apart" from one another) motivated this short-lived serial. Although generally well-written and possessing one of the most talented casts in daytime television, "A World Apart" perished quickly in its early morning time-slot, but not before exploring such relevant early 70's issues such as: racial prejudice, teenage pregnancy, and cults.
