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.
