Set against the backdrop of the 1921 Tulsa riots, Hunger In Paradise introduces the audience to the citizens of Greenwood , a thriving area of black-owned businesses and prosperity. When proprietor Damie 's adopted son "D" becomes involved with a white woman, racial tensions explode into violence and destruction, irreversibly altering the relationships among the Greenwood and Tulsa neighbors
