Mike Westfall, third cellist in the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, lives a life of splendid isolation with his artist wife Katherine and their child, Pablo in their storybook converted coach house. Katherine, who has an upcoming show of photographs she took in the wake of the previous summer's rioting, wants Pablo bused to better prepare him for the 'real world' and as an action to speed racial integration in the schools. One fateful morning, Mike follows Pablo's bus into the city's core and his protective instincts trigger a battle of ideals between Katherine and himself. When a close friend is murdered, the Westfall's choice to run or stand is brought to a climax
