Tense and Relevant. A summer storm is raging outside a Miami police station and inside, as well, where an interracial couple, black mother/white father, await news of their missing son. As two policemen, one white, one black, pursue details of the missing youth, all four characters become engulfed in a battle of bias, judgment and racial prejudice. With the fate of a child at risk, tensions mount, and fear grows that the answers will never be as simple as black or white.
