Remake of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner follows a black man's struggle with his daughter's desire to marry a white man.

Remake of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967). Percy Jones, father to upstanding daughter Theresa, hears tell of his child's plans to marry a man in her life. Intrigued, Percy decides to have her beau, businessman Simon Green, over for dinner; complications arise when Percy, a black man, learns that Simon is a white man fitting the "WASP" stereotype to a T, clashing with his background and demeanor as the groom-to-be does his best to leave a good impression on his prospective in-laws. Defanged remake of 1967's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, with the races reversed.
