In Harlem, N.Y., crime boss Tommy Gibbs (Fred Williamson) is gravely injured while escaping a hit ordered by the corrupt district attorney, DiAngelo (Gerald Gordon). As he recovers, his father, Papa Gibbs (Julius W. Harris), assumes control of the gang, which angers Tommy's best henchman, Zach (Tony King), who goes on to collaborate with DiAngelo and frame Papa Gibbs for the murder of Tommy's ex-wife. This sets off a series of bloody betrayals that ricochet within the crime world.
