Losing Ground tells the story of a marriage of two remarkable people, both at a crossroads in their lives. Sara Rogers, a black professor of philosophy, is embarking on an intellectual quest to understand "ecstasy" just as her painter husband Victor sets off on a more earthly exploration of joy. Celebrating a recent museum sale, Victor decides to rent a country house where he can return to more realism after years working as an abstract expressionist. Away from the city, the couple's summer idyll becomes complicated by Sara's research and by Victor's involvement with a young model. When one of her students casts Sara as the woman scorned in a film version of the song "Frankie and Johnny," she experiences a painful emotional awakening. One of the first fictional features by an African-American woman.
