Detroit ex-cop August Snow takes up vigilante justice
when his beloved neighborhood of Mexicantown is caught in
the crosshairs of a human traffickingscheme.
When the body of an unidentified young Hispanic woman
dressed as Queen Marie Antoinette is dredged from the
Detroit River, the Detroit Police Department wants the case
closed fast. Wayne County Coroner Bobby Falconi gives the
womanâ€™s photo to his old pal ex-police detective August
Snow, insisting August show it around his native Mexicantown
to see if anyone recognizes her. Augustâ€™s good friend Elena,
a prominent advocate for undocumented immigrants, recognizes
the woman immediately as a local teenager, Isadora del Torres.
Izzyâ€™s story is one the authorities donâ€™t want getting
aroundâ€”and sheâ€™s not the only young woman to have
disappeared during an Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) raid, only to turn up dead a few weeks later. Preyed
upon by the law itself, the people of Mexicantown have no
one to turn to. August Snow, the son of an African-American
cop and a Mexican-American painter, will not sit by and
watch his neighbors suffer in silence. In a guns-blazing
wild ride across Detroit, from its neo-Nazi biker hole-ups
to its hip-hop recording studios, its swanky social clubs to
its seedy nightclubs, August puts his own life on the line
to protect the community he loves.
