“It’s the murder capital of the world- Motortown, where the honkies are the minority race.”
Street-smart white detective Danny Bassett (Alex Rocco) teams with educated black detective Sgt. Jesse Williams (Hari Rhodes) to investigate a theft of $400,000 at a fund-raiser for Representative Aubrey Hale Clayton (Rudy Challenger) whilst working together under boiling political pressure.
It should be noted that during the time of the film’s production, “9000” was the Detroit Police radio code for “officer down,” however that radio term was phased out in the early 1980’s.
