Only one person can stop a race rot...the man suspected of starting it.
In a small southern town, the Klan is the secret power. It controls the politics, it controls the police. So when a Klan leader is murdered, it becomes easy to find a suspect: Jerry Robinson (Courtney B. Vance), the county' only black cop. In this explosive action thriller, one cop's color hasp laced him on the wrong side of the thin blue line, and the only thing that's keeping him alive is a witness to the murder - the Klan leader's son.
Reared on racism and hate, the kid and the cop are united by what they share in common: whoever killed the Klan leader wants them both dead.
Now it's a fearful race against time to find the killer before he finds them. Their only hope lives in the one cop on the f-rce they can trust: Lucy Monroe (Virginia Madsen). When everything you believe in turns out to be a lie, you learn to trust no one...unless you're holding a gun.
