Summary
J.J. is a rookie trooper in the Sheriff's Department, and the first Black officer at that station. Some of J.J.'s fellow officers resent his presence because of his race. His only real friend is the other new trooper, the first female officer to work there, who suffers similar discrimination in the otherwise all white male work environment. When J.J. becomes increasingly aware of police corruption during the murder trial of Teddy Woods, who he helped to arrest, he faces difficult decisions and puts himself into grave personal danger in the service of justice.
