Claudine (Diahann Carroll) is a single mother in New York City who endures an exhausting commute to
the suburbs where she works as a maid for wealthy families. In one carefully tended white community,
she meets Roop (James Earl Jones), a charismatic but irresponsible garbage collector. Romance quickly
ensues, but Claudine doubts that their relationship is good for her six children, and Rupert, despite his
good nature, is reluctant to take on fatherhood.
