On an urban battleground dangerously divided along racial lines, probation officer Steve Baum is desperately struggling to hold on to the last remaining shreds of his idealism, until Darryl King invades his world. A deranged young sociopath, one of the most bloodthirsty creations of a diseased society, Darryl has come to drag Baum along with him into an inescapable morass of terror and corruption. As their ravaged city explodes, they will stand face-to-face, mortal enemies trapped together in the heart of a devastating inferno that threatens to consume them both.
