1947. Vernon Beaumont, a black private detective in Philadelphia, returns to his hometown of Aiken, South Carolina, to investigate a routine infidelity case. But when his target, a wealthy white man, is gunned down, and the chief suspect is that man's black chauffer, Beaumont decides to traverse the social and racial tensions of the town to uncover the truth behind the murder.
A towering unit set flanking a central turn table provides ample surfaces for lights and projections to shift quickly between the multiple locales as this murder mystery unfolds.
