A compelling glimpse into race relations in the 1920s, Passing traces the lives of two mixed-race women ensnared by the era’s segregated worlds. One is raised as white and marries a racist, the other commits herself to racial equality. But after years apart their reunion only exposes how polarized their lives have become with tragic results.
