When the Jarrett Creek Fire Department is called to douse a house fire on the outskirts of town, they discover a grisly scene: five young black people have been murdered. Newly appointed chief of police Samuel Craddock, just back from a stint in the Air Force, finds himself an outsider in the investigation headed by the Texas Highway Patrol. He takes an immediate dislike to John Sutherland, a racist trooper who seems to be jumping to conclusions about the case. Craddock's fears are realized when Sutherland arrests Truly Bennett, a black man whom Craddock knows and respects. Sutherland cites dubious evidence that points to Bennett. Craddock uncovers leads pointing in another direction and is faced with a choice that will define him as a lawman.
