Brack Pelton, an Afghanistan vet and owner of a Charleston, SC, bar, intervenes when a man tries to abduct a young woman and her little sister in the parking lot. The woman is shot, and Brack is compelled to find her murderer. With the help of Brother Thomas, pastor of the Church of Redemption, and his Marine friend, Mutt, Brack gains access to the African American community in south Charleston. As he investigates, Brack's liquor license is suspended by the state and Mutt's bar is firebombed. Someone doesn't want the truth coming out.
