Die Familie Lamar kann sich glücklich schätzen: Der Vater bekommt eine Dozentenstelle an einer kleinen amerikanischen Universität, die Mutter genießt das Haus mit Garten, auch die drei Kinder fühlen sich in der neuen Umgebung wohl. Aber die Vergangenheit wirft dunkle Schatten auf die Idylle; sie wird gegenwärtig in alten zufällig entdeckten Tagebuchaufzeichnungen der Mutter. Diese führen ins New York der fünfziger Jahre, ins Harlem der Schwarzen mit Cool-Jazz und Blues, gefährlichem Nachtleben, düsteren Clubs, Drogen und Prostitution und sie enthüllen das Geheimnis einer einzigen "schrecklichen Nacht".
