A white physician attempts to oust his black receptionist by enlisting a white female coworker as a spy. Tensions rise as relations between the two women quickly deteriorate, turning their once-cordial workplace into a battlefield of innuendo, paranoia, and passive aggression. With trademark wit and close observation, Joel Drake Johnson mines the subtleties of "post-racial" America to explore what we are really saying when we refuse to talk about race.
