Summary
Selena D'Arcy is accidentally blinded by her prostitute mother, Rose-Ann, at the age of five. For the next 13 years she is confined in the tiny Los Angeles apartment that they share with her grandfather. One afternoon at the local park, Selena meets Gordon Ralfe, an office worker whose kind treatment of her results in her falling in love with him, unaware that he is black. They continue to meet in the park every afternoon and he teaches her how to get along in the city. But when Rose-Ann learns of their relationship, she forbids Selena from having anything more to do with him. Selena continues to meet Gordon despite Rose-Ann's fury.
