Cornelius Alexander Anderson Jr., a.k.a. the Deuce, is the privileged only son of the president of an HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). He is the darling of his prominent family with his life completely planned and directed by the family. He is not even allowed to choose the woman he must marry in order to produce the expected heir to carry on the prominent line. Through his own grit and determination, he becomes a well-known professional basketball player. The renown and wealth that comes from his skill and talent in his chosen profession is never accepted by his family as worthy. It is not surprising that his family views his eventual choice of a companion for himself the same way. Elaine Drummond is a young woman who has never really known who she is, although she has always been aware of what society dictates for her. She has grown up knowing that she must keep to her place. Something inside of her makes her rebel against her dictatorial mother who claims to want to keep her safe by keeping her away from the harsh experiences that the world always gives to girls like her. Elaine cannot let herself trust. She knows better than to hope or believe. It is no surprise that devastating fireworks are the result of their meeting. There is no way to avoid the hand of fate. Someone will surely learn thats how heartaches are made.
