    Responding to pressure from on high, the Atlanta Police Department is forced to hire its first black officers. It's a victory of sorts, though the newly minted policemen are met with deep hostility by their white peers, and their authority is limited: They can't arrest a suspect unless a white officer is present; they can't drive squad cars; they can't even enter the station through the front door.

    Atlanta, 1948. In this city all crime is black and white. On one side of the tracks are the rich white neighbourhoods, on the other Darktown, the African American area guarded by the city's first black police force of only eight men. These cops are kept near powerless by the authorities: they can't arrest white suspects; they can't drive squad cars; they must operate out of a dingy basement. When a poor black woman is killed in Darktown having been last seen in a car with a rich white man, no one seems to care except for Boggs and Smith, two black cops.

Ihre weißen Kollegen begegnen ihnen mit tiefster Feindseligkeit. Als eine junge schwarze Frau tot aufgefunden wird, nehmen sie die Ermittlungen auf - und geraten an Dunlow, einen brutalen Cop, der das Viertel seit Langem wie ein kleiner König regiert. Zwischen zwielichtigen Alkoholschmugglern, scheinheiligen Puffmüttern, korrupten Gesetzeshütern und unter permanenter Anfeindung riskieren Boggs und Smith ihre neuen Jobs - und ihr Leben -, um den Fall zu lösen.
