Xavier Quinn (Denzel Washington) is the police chief of a tiny Caribbean island. He is on good terms with all. When a prominent businessman is murdered, Quinn, like everyone else, believes that the killer is Maubee--a local folk hero and Quinn's childhood friend. Quinn suspects that there may be more sinister reasons for pinning the crime on Maubee. Alone, Quinn insists on pursuing the investigation, and it will plunge him into the decadent lives of the island's "White Establishment."
