A sexually and racially charged film noir from Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels, this takes audiences deep into the backwaters of steamy 1960s South Florida, as an investigative reporter and his partner chase a sensational, career-making story. With the help of a younger brother and a sultry death-row groupie, the pair tries to prove that a violent swamp-dweller was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff.
