On a stormy night in a Miami police station, Kendra Ellis-Connor is waiting for a report on the whereabouts of her son Jamal, who has suddenly disappeared. She asks for help from Officer Paul Larkin, a rookie cop who is unable to tell her anything about the incident, due to both protocol and a lack of knowledge of the incident, telling her that he has to wait for Lieutenant John Stokes, the AM shift liaison officer. Soon, her estranged husband, FBI agent Scott Connor, arrives at the station and demands to know where Jamal is.
Larkin is able to tell Scott that Jamal and two other black men were pulled over by police, but is unable to tell them anything further, other than the fact that Jamal’s car had a provocative bumper sticker about violence against cops. This revelation devolves into a long argument between Kendra and Scott, where the two confront their tumultuous marriage and their experiences raising a biracial son in a privileged community. Kendra repeatedly brings up how Jamal feels depressed and isolated as one of the very few black men at his school (referring to himself as “the face of the race”), while Scott says that Jamal should have known better than to present himself like “a gangster.”
