Los Angeles, 1963. African American Korean War veteran Harry Ingram earns a living as a news photographer. With racial tensions running high on the eve of Martin Luther King's Freedom Rally, Ingram risks becoming a victim at every crime scene he photographs.

The LAPD declares the crash an accident, but when Ingram develops his photos, he sees signs of foul play. Armed with his wits, his camera, and his Colt .45, "One-Shot" Harry plunges into the seamy underbelly of LA society in the hope of finding something resembling justice for a friend.
