Nat Hennessy - saw his father battered to death by a drunken black looter during the Great Blackout of 1977. Twenty years later, Nat, now a cop, has the chance to avenge the brutal murder - but only at the cost of compromising his own integrity.



Cush Walker - must live with the memory of witnessing his father's lynching at the hands of the Ku-Klux-Klan. A pioneering brain surgeon, he has dedicated his life to eradicating the bigotry that caused the tragedy.



Camilla Bissonnette - engaged to one man, loved by the other, she discovers a secret in her own past that has profound implications for both. Now she lies in a coma and needs the technical skills of Cush to save her. But even this is not enough without a chilling personal sacrifice.
