This low-budget actioner, a kissing cousin to the blaxploitation films of the '70s, follows the chaotic relationship between a member of a street thug who is involved with a local terrorist group and a married, lady cop. The two had been lovers in high school, but the relationship ended. Years passed and Curtis remains a drifter, making just enough to get by with petty crimes and thuggery. One day, he and his cronies mug a pair of police officers, and one of them turns out to be Tracy, Curtis' old flame. Sparks fly and the romance rekindles. Meanwhile Curtis continues to be badgered by Jamal, the leader of a socially-conscious local militia that is responsible for publicly tarring and feathering wealthy whites.
