When a white cop shoots an unarmed black man, the reverberations reach all the way up to the highest levels of society. Combining elements of comedy and tragedy, the multi-layered narrative shifts from Jay Gladstone's gilded universe to the worlds of an opportunistic district attorney, an aging professional athlete in search of one last payday, a group of college radicals, a virtuous but unlucky cop who wants to be a lawyer, and a feisty pair of talk radio personalities.
