  • Rating: TV-G
Parallel Lives is a public television documentary that tells the story of two women who led very different yet amazingly complementary lives. While they grew up in Miami, their experiences of the city, its history, and its culture were seen through vastly different lenses. One was white; the other black. It was history that finally brought their lives together.
