A white ex-soldier from Vietnam goes to visit the father of his friend who was shot and killed. He has to travel to Watts, California and as soon as he arrives he finds trouble from all sides.
His dead friends brother Tom hates all whites and wants Clark's character of Jim to die as he does all white people. Jim also has to deal with white racist police officers played by Jock Mahoney and Aldo Ray.
Ten tension grows and grows and most of Tom's friends tell him he is headed for nothing but trouble with so much hate inside of him, but he doesn't listen.
Tom vows to kill Jim personally and soon he is hunting Jim with a rifle. The ending to the film is both bleak and not unexpected, and it kind of brings the film full circle to the opening which takes place in Vietnam.
Tom Jonigarn is excellent as Tom and his anger is very realistic and understandable. The movie really makes you think about things and I found the characters very well done by all involved.
I had never heard of this film before, but when I saw it on sale I just had to pick it up, and I can recommend it to every film fan or blaxploitation fan out there.
