Summary

In an alternate, dystopian future run by supremacy and racism, a man travels back in time to fix it all and end the blatant prejudice amongst people of all colors. However, in his pursuit, he comes across several obstacles and challenges, people who help him, and people against him. Towards the end, he comes close to losing hope and giving up, pondering over the choice of ending it all, but eventually regains faith in humanity and fights through the struggles for the sake of his daughters. His efforts make the future what it is today, a better place, yet he is unable to return to the present day, as he has so much more to do to abolish racism, and it is his goal to do his very best.
