The story depicts the life of a young, ambitious, bi-racial executive who covertly assumes the identity of an affluent, educated, white man. In an attempt to overcome racial barriers, which he encountered at the brokerage firm, Sheares & Berkowitz Financial Services, Mr. Downs exploited his white ancestry. And, he suppressed or hid any biological connection to his black ancestry. Ultimately, he became a victim of his own deception and, consequently, was struck by a terrible tragedy. Surviving a near fatal automobile explosion, he was left blind. It was in this foreign state of darkness that Mr. Downs discovered himself. He suddenly realized that life and love are more important than money and power.
