Wisper, a successful black businessman and bar owner, lives with his family in an affluent white neighborhood. A self-made man and proud of it, Wisper has a personal photographer who follows him everywhere. Everywhere, that is, except when he visits his mistress, Melonie. One night, he comes home from Melonie's place to find his wife and children murdered and, despite his alibi, the cops consider Wisper a prime suspect. Frustrated with the lack of results from the police, and worried that he will be made a scapegoat, Wisper decides to investigate the murder on his own. As he and his photographer, Laura, search for clues, Wisper realizes he may not like what he finds.
