Au fin fond des Appalaches, la jeune fille d'un pasteur pentecôtiste, Mara, est courtisée par deux hommes : l'un des paroissiens, Garret, et un autre homme qui a quitté l'église, Augie. Son père, Lemuel, dirige une communauté de croyants qui manipulent le venin de serpents afin de montrer leur courage et faire leurs preuves devant Dieu. Enceinte d'Augie, et poussée par les religieux, Mara accepte d'épouser Garret. Un jour, alors qu'il tente de charmer un serpent, un mineur décède. Afin de protéger sa secte, Lemuel demande à Garret de prétendre que les reptiles lui appartiennent. Pendant ce temps, avant son mariage, Mara est auscultée par la mère d'Augie, Hope, qui découvre qu'elle n'est plus vierge et qu'elle porte un enfant en elle. Cette dernière décide de se taire auprès de Lemuel et Garret mais elle oblige son fils à se repentir. Mais l'étau se resserre petit à petit autour du couple interdit, lorsque Augie se fait mordre à son tour et quand Garret surprend sa future épouse avec lui. Alors que son secret est dévoilé à son père et la secte, elle donne son accord pour faire face à son tour à leur tradition meurtrière afin de se purifier.

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.

The film opens with J. Edgar Hoover in his office during his later years. He asks that a writer, known as Agent Smith, be let in, so that he may tell the story of the origin of the FBI for the sake of the public. Hoover explains that the story begins in 1919, when A. Mitchell Palmer was Attorney General and Hoover's boss at the Justice Department. Palmer suffers an assassination attempt, but is unharmed when the bomb explodes earlier than intended. Hoover recalls that the police handling of the crime scene was primitive, and that it was that night that he recognized the importance of criminal science. Later, Hoover visits his mother, Anna Marie, and tells her that Palmer has put him in charge of a new anti-radical division, and that he has already begun compiling a list of suspected radicals. He leaves to meet Helen Gandy, who has just started as a secretary at the Justice Department. Hoover takes Gandy to the Library of Congress, and shows her the card catalog system he devised. He muses about how easy it would be to solve crimes if every citizen were as easily identifiable as the books in the library. When Hoover attempts to kiss her, she recoils. Hoover gets down on his knees and asks her to marry him, citing her organization and education, but his request is once again denied. However, Gandy agrees to become his personal secretary.
