En juillet 1967, d'importantes émeutes ont lieu à Détroit dans le Michigan, pour protester contre la ségrégation raciale aux États-Unis et la guerre du Viêt Nam. La police de Détroit reçoit des plaintes à propos de pillages, d'incendies et de tirs d'armes à feu pendant plusieurs jours. Les forces de l'ordre et la population Afro-Américaine sont sous pression et chaque situation est susceptible de dégénérer dangereusement. C'est dans ce contexte que les forces de l’ordre encerclent l’Algiers Motel d’où semblent provenir des détonations, et où va se dérouler l'affaire du Motel Algiers. Dans ce chaos, Melvin Dismukes, un agent de sécurité privé afro-américain, tente de survivre tout en protégeant — bien mal — ses semblables. Persuadés d'avoir été visés, mus par le racisme, le sadisme et un sentiment d'impunité les policiers vont terroriser, frapper violemment, injurier les clients de l'hôtel pendant une grande partie de la nuit et en tuer trois. Justice ne sera jamais rendue.

Mal, an addict, shoots his mother and heads to the mall. At the same time, a cop urges philosophical college student Jeff to stop loitering on private property. Jeff and his friend Adelle also go to the mall, as Jeff tells her about his belief that modern society has become soulless and an shallow facsimile of itself. Jeff describes several of the people that they see at the mall and narratives what he imagines their back story to be: Donna, a bored housewife who obsesses over her attractiveness; Barry, a salesman who hates his business but stays in it because he understands it; Michael, a security guard who, after immigrating, becomes a widower and lives only for his job; and Danny, a married businessman who engages in casual sex.
