White Man's Burden | 1995
Louis Pinnock is a factory worker with a history of company loyalty. He's up for the foreman's job and looks forward to making a better life for his wife and children--until his world collides with that of Thaddeus Thomas. Thaddeus was born into wealth and privilege and life has never disappointed him. A businessman with a flair for fine living, he has a magnificent home and a beautiful family. For Thaddeus, life's possibilities are unlimited. It is when their paths cross that Pinnock, in a single unguarded moment, oversteps the invisible barrier that separates race and class. The incident costs him everything: livelihood, home, family. The desperate course of action he pursues changes the lives of everyone he touches--especially that of Thaddeus Thomas.
