In an unnamed House of Detention in New York City, six inmates have settled into a untroubled existence in their dayroom despite racial lines being drawn across the rest of the facility. One day, a new prisoner is brought in: Clark Davis, a young, middle-class white man accused of raping a young girl. His presence upsets the status-quo and threatens to tear the prisoners apart.
