They should be hailed as heroes. Instead, they become the accused. Four young Hawaiian men who find a beaten and raped nude Caucasian woman and rush her to a Honolulu hospital are the defendants in a heated trial that underscores the divide between locals and powerful, plantation-running whites of 1937 Hawaii. Working from his own bestselling novel, Norman Katkov provides the script for this miniseries tale of twisted justice and deadly vengeance. As the investigating police captain who swims against the tide of racism and rancor surrounding the case, Kris Kristofferson leads a notable cast that includes Jane Alexander, Sean Young, Jose Ferrer, James Saito and Madeline Stowe.
