The Wilsons and the Martins have lived next door to each other their whole lives.  And yet they are as distant as if they lived in two different cities.  The Wilsons are African American and the Martins are white.  And the two just don't go together in this small Florida town.  But when a goat wanders into the other's yard, the children get to know each other.  And they actually form a friendship.  Is there anyway that their families can overcome the prejudice of the times and become friends?
