Mayor Samuel Jammison, Jr. is a good man, a beloved
civil rights hero and a dedicated public servant. One night while he
is at a fundraiser formally announcing his plans to seek a third
term, his daughter is kidnapped and her boy friend viciously murdered
in front of his own home.
Making matters worse, the National Guard is called in
and a dusk to dawn curfew ordered after angry rioters attack innocent
people, vandalize businesses and set dozens of fires.
Everything begins to unravel.
