Harmond Wilks, an Ivy League-educated lawyer with an educated and ambitious wife, wants to redevelop a poverty-stricken section of Pittsburgh with his business partner and friend, Roosevelt Hicks. Meanwhile, Harmond is also preparing for his candidacy to become Pittsburgh's first black mayor. Suddenly another world intrudes when the owner of an old mansion at 1839 Wylie refuses to give up his home and make room for the development. It turns out that the 1839 Wylie has a more significant past than Harmond or Roosevelt could have imagined.
