In 2014, Edith Hill, 96, and Eddie Harrison, 95, get married. The fact that one of them is African American and the other is white doesn't concern them in the slightest.

However, the newlyweds are forced apart when one of Edith's daughters, unhappy about the relationship, forces her mother against her will to leave her Virginia home and move to Florida to be placed in an institution.

Executive-produced by Cher, who became involved in Edith and Eddie's lives after seeing a news report on them.
