It is 1963, and Caroline is a black woman who works as a maid for the Gellman family. Earning $30 a week, she is laundering clothes in the basement. Noah, the 8-year old son of the Gellman's is very close to Caroline, particularly due to the recent death of Noah’s mother. Caroline and Noah share a secret, which involves him lighting one cigarette a day for his caretaker. Caroline herself is a mother to four children and tries her best to provide the best life that she possibly can, given her means.
The careless Noah often leaves money in his pants, which Caroline find while putting them to wash. Noah’s stepmother, Rose, warns him that Caroline is allowed to keep any money that she finds in his pockets, so as to teach him a lesson and also supplement Caroline’s income. Noah, however, purposely leaves his comic book money in his pocket, to help Caroline. Will their friendship be jeopardized when Caroline keeps the money left in Noah’s pockets?
