Filmed independently in Cleveland, Double Stop is a clumsily staged but effective plea for racial tolerance. Uptight concert musician Jeremiah Sullivan discovers that his son is attending public school with (gasp!) black children. He swiftly bundles the kid off to a private school, much to the disgust of his liberal-minded wife (Mimi Torchin). Sullivan has a change of heart when he learns that his best friend received an excellent education at that selfsame multiracial public school.
