MY SWEET CHARLIE, set during the height of the Civil Rights movement, is the story of Charlie Roberts, a black attorney & activist from New York City, who is falsely accused of cold-blooded murder during a demonstration in Alabama. Fleeing his would-be captors, Charlie escapes to a vacant coastal vacation home, where he encounters Marlene Chambers, a white, uneducated, prejudiced, unwed, pregnant teenager, shunned by her father & boyfriend & who sought refuge in the vacant home a few weeks before Charlie arrived. Realizing their survival depends upon their willingness to help each other, their relationship, at first defined by mutual contempt & deeply rooted racial prejudice, slowly evolves into a touching friendship.
