During the start of the civil rights movement in Mississippi, Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan is just home from college, and wants to hone her journalism skills. She decides to collect the stories of the black women on whom the country club set relies, enlisting the help of Aibileen, a maid who's raised 17 white children, and Aibileen's sassy best friend, Minny. The results are shocking, but bring hope to the black community and give Skeeter the courage to break down her boundaries and pursue her dreams.
