When renowned African-American playwright Andrew Sterling (Samuel L. Jackson) moves into an all-white suburb, his suspicious new neighbors mistake him for a burglar and promptly call the police. When Sterling's identity becomes clear, the police plan a hasty cover-up, duping low-class crook Amos Odell (Nicolas Cage) into taking Sterling "hostage." Racial stereotypes get skewered 1990s style in this satire from director E. Max Frye (Palmetto).
