A teenager, determined to end the reign of his abusive, alcoholic father, ends up accused of a murder he didn't commit.
A noted Klansman, Miran Thompson, has been killed, and the prime suspect in his murder case is seventeen-year-old Larry Henderson. Complicating matters, Larry's father, Officer Perry Henderson, is deeply involved in the case. To the casual observer, the evidence against Larry is overwhelming. If convicted, he would surely receive the death penalty. In order to avoid death row, Perry convinces his son to plead guilty. He promises to do all he can to prove Larry innocent.
But are Perry's motivations so pure? The father and son's turbulent past has created a deep rift between them, and Perry is afraid of the teen's repeated promises for vengeance. Believing he is being set up for murder, Perry instead aims the evidence at his own son, allowing him to take the fall—but will his scheme succeed, or will Larry be proven innocent?
