Two poor single mothers, each with one daughter, meet at Coney Island one day and form a household to benefit everyone. Struggling white actress Lora Meredith hires widowed black woman Annie Johnson, who is homeless. As the years pass, the housekeeper's light-complexioned daughter, Sarah Jane, grows up and rejects her mother, choosing to pass as a white woman. Meanwhile the self-absorbed actress suffers through a volatile relationship with her daughter, Susie. The tear-jerking melodrama stars Lana Turner, Juanita Moore, Susan Kohner, Sandra Dee and John Gavin. Douglas Sirk directed it.
