In the 1890s, cotton exporter James Houston (Christopher Walken) masterminds a plot to take over the New Orleans docks. When police chief David Hennessy (Clancy Brown) stands in the way, he is killed. As a result of the homicide, Sicilian immigrants who work on the New Orleans docks are rounded up for questioning. Eventually, nine go on trial, but all are acquitted. However, the populace does not agree with the verdicts, and a series of lynchings result. This made-for-HBO film is based on a true story.
