The Acorn 107 Generations Drive
In 1967, Joanna Drayton, a 23 year old white woman, returns from her Hawaiian vacation to her parents' home in San Francisco with Dr. John Prentice, a 37 year old black widower. The couple became engaged after a 10-day whirlwind romance. Joanna's parents, Matt and Christina, are initially shocked their daughter is engaged to a man of a different race.
To John's surprise, Joanna invites John's parents to fly up from Los Angeles to join them for dinner that evening. John has not told them his fiancée is white. Many poignant and hilarious conversations take place, as the two families wrestle with this idea, which was very radical at the time. The families eventually sit down together for dinner.
