Shawn Dickerson, an early thirties, rough around the edges street guy is accused of killing BRENDA SAWYER, a wealthy and prominent older lady, known for her compassion, and benevolence towards kids from the inner-cities. Shawn is hunted by Brenda's grieving husband HARRY, the police, and a very ambitious and overzealous Assistant D.A. name BALLARD, who is willing to do whatever she has to do to make District Attorney, even if it means bending the rules. Harry, already distraught due to the death of his daughter Susan, at the hands of a hit and run driver, decides to take the law into his own hands, to mete out Justice to Shawn. While Shawn is on the run, Assistant D.A Ballard devises a plan to procure the case once Shawn is apprehended, believing that a guilty verdict against Shawn will increase her chances of becoming the D.A. Once Shawn is apprehended, the fireworks begin.
