Leap in the Dark portrays the harrowing life of a twenty-two-year-old African student who struggles to find a balance between liberation from his culture and the true beauty of his heritage. Tito leaves a poor, polygamous family in Africa to pursue his dreams in America with the hope of returning home to contribute to the development of his country, but social and emotional circumstances in his adopted country plague him, and force him to stay abroad. He struggles to fit into the fabric of America, constantly working to redefine his identity while fighting racial discrimination and seeking validation from his own people, among others. Will Tito stay with his white girlfriend and continue to subject himself to acts of racism or return to his country to help his people?
