Jackson, Mississippi, at the beginning of the 1960s. The US Civil Rights Movement gradually sparks a bushfire that expands throughout the country. The young, white, and affluent Skeeter returns to her hometown in the Southern countryside after college and dreams of becoming a writer. Fueled by an innocent sense of justice and the liberal viewpoints of university life, she has a plan for her first book. She interviews women, who have spent their whole lives as black house servants taking care of the children of the white upper classes. The book is supposed to give them a voice. Skeeter comes up against several obstacles, but in the end the book is a great success. (SW)
