Burning an Illusion

A young British-born woman of color comes of age while seeking security through marriage. But the false arrest and merciless beating of her boyfriend by police forces a turning point in both their lives. While in prison, Del asks Pat to bring him books on Black history; she reads them first. As she becomes more politically aware, their relationship changes and Pat begins to question her middle-class aspirations and attitudes. She begins shedding her old biases to reclaim her African heritage.
