The two share a bond that cuts across society's black/white divide. A patch of blue: Selena D'Arcy is accidentally blinded by her prostitute mother, Rose-Ann, at the age of five. For the next 13 years she is confined in the tiny Los Angeles apartment that they share with her grandfather. One afternoon at the local park, Selena meets Gordon Ralfe, an office worker whose kind 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 Rose-Ann learns of their relationship, she forbids Selena from having anything more to do with him. Selena continues to meet Gordon despite Rose-Ann's fury. Something of value: In the British East Africa country of Kenya, former childhood playmates Peter McKenzie and Kimani have maintained their deep friendship, even though they have a difference in race, class and tradition. Then the bloody Mau Mau spread violence and terror in an effort to sweep the British from the land, the uprising destroys their magnificent homeland. The men discover that even the strongest bond may be stronger than the beat of the drums or the crack of rifles and the cry for freedom.

They are there for dirt-bike racing competition and unexpectedly, the widowed Dr. Younger begins a new romance.
