Imitation of Life
The lives of a widow and her housekeeper are united first in mutual need, then success and ultimately, in heartache. Bea and Delilah are two women with young daughters who build a life and a fortune together selling Delilah's pancake recipe. But success doesn't save them from sorrow with the passing years. Delilah's light-skinned teenager rejects her mother and her race, while Bea must choose between the man she loves and the daughter who loves him, too.
