Alma's Rainbow tells the story of Alma Gold, an African-American straight-laced owner of a beauty parlor who lives with her adolescent daughter, Rainbow, in Brooklyn, New York. This unique story utilizes both comedy and drama to tell its story. Rainbow attends a strict parochial school, studies dance and is just becoming aware of boys. Alma has fooled herself into believing she has no need of male companionship and advises her daughter to follow her example.

However, when Alma's older daughter, Ruby, a successful, sexy nightclub singer from Paris, arrives for a visit, Alma and Rainbow's austere life is disrupted.
