Regina Louise is a successful businesswoman who owns two beauty salons, and she is the author of a memoir, Somebody's Someone. When Louise was 12, she was in a group home where Jeanne Kerr was a social worker. They developed a friendship, but Jeanne's attempt to adopt Regina was denied because Regina is black and Jeanne is white. The two lost touch, and Regina spent many years searching for Jeanne. This year they reunited.
