The brutal murder of two young white girls results in the wrongful execution of a young African-American boy. Thirty years later, his brother and war-torn Green Beret James Bragg (Gossett), investigates the facts to clear his name. With the aid of a local lawman (Bruce Dern), Bragg must delve into the town's history in order to deliver the real killer to justice. But, some unsavory locals will stop at nothing to prevent Bragg from revealing the dangerous truth.
The Cops Are Robbers
It was the biggest bank job in history... a $25,000,000 heist as perfectly planned as it was executed. At first the finger os suspicion pointed at the usual suspects in Boston's underworld, but then the shocking truth began to emerge - the robbery was the work of none other than the city's police captain, Jerry Celmente, and his gang of corrupt cops.
Mike Hammer: Private Eye
Created by acclaimed detective-noir author Mickey Spillane, private eye Mike Hammer (Stacy Keach) is a hard-boiled, two fisted detective who mixes it up with tough guys on a mission, clean and dirty cops on the beat and drop-dead gorgeous dames with plenty of attitude. In "A New Leaf" a tobacco company scientist about to give evidence in a major trial dies suddenly. Suspicioins are roused and Hammer is hired to investigate the boffin's untimely end. But as the case unfolds, there's a second death - a member of a wealthy tobacco family is brutally slain - leaving the private detective up to his neck in double trouble.
On The Streets Of LA
Louis Gossett Jr. plays a convict who has gained a reputation as a peace-keeper in a maximum security prison. He is confronted with a gut-wrenching dilemma when the son (Blair Underwood) he abandoned years ago arrives at the same prison. Far from being a peace-keeper, his son disrupts the uneasy calm of the prison. Both are paroled from the same maximum security prison with one condition, that they must become roommates. Gossett becomes a mechanic while Underwood falls with his old criminal buddies and old habits. Their severed bonds are strained as the elder battles to keep his son from the lures of street life.
