Three women and two girls face political, racial and personal bombshells during the tension-filled days of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.
Flossie Johnson is a housekeeper who wants to sit in the front of the bus instead of the back on the way to her new job at the Adams house.
Six-year-old Birdie Adams wants to run away and join the circus but guesses she'll have to go to the first grade and hang around with her new baby brother instead. Maybe her big sister needs a little help, too. The circus will have to wait.
Twelve-year-old Melanie Adams wants her friend to stop bugging her to get her first kiss. Melanie's already had her first kiss, but won't spoil the special secret by talking about it.
Norah Adams is a good mother and wife who wants to keep her family safe and happy, but tucking the order form for dogtags in her daughters' lunch boxes is a big change from the everyday bologna sandwiches.
Lola Carter wants the life her sister, Norah, has. Instead she has a factory job, an alcohol and prescription drug addiction, and an abusive boyfriend.
Even if President Kennedy prevents World War III, these women's lives will be changed forever.
