Mary Elizabeth, an outgoing white girl, and Rene, a shy black girl, become close friends as they grow up in 1960's Alabama. Their friendship comes to an end, however, when Mary Elizabeth (ME) gets pregnant and Rene doesn't support her decision to keep the child and marry her boyfriend. Thirty years later, ME is still living in Alabama with her husband as they struggle to make ends meet. Rene, meanwhile is a successful attorney working in Washington. After the death of her father, Rene decides to move back to her old hometown, where she meets ME again. As the pair resume their old friendship, they reminisce on old times and the events that occurred after splitting up. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

the show is great!!!!!!!
16 August 2004 | by (birmingham alabama) – See all my reviews

This show was the best i found it one day while watching lifetime it was the first episode it was the best show i have ever seen because it helps us understand no matter how bad things get like racism and etc that there is always something good to come out of everything bad.and it is good that it is a show about two women one black one white and how the had overcome that rift in their friendship and how all the stars in the show help overcome the problems Annie Potts is great as M.E.another show like any day now is the golden girls and designing women but any day now is the best i am always around to see even the reruns of the show and if I'm not i have my vcr set to tape them.
