Trama: Derek Vinyard, carismatico leader di un'organizzazione neonazista di Los Angeles, è un idolo per l'adolescente fratello Danny. Arrestato per aver ucciso tre neri che avevano tentato di rubargli l'auto, Derek esce dopo tre anni di prigione ravveduto e deciso ad impedire che Danny segua le sue stesse orme. Il giovane Danny non comprende il mutamento di pensiero e di comportamento del fratello maggiore, il quale si trova costretto a raccontargli ciò che gli è accaduto nel periodo di detenzione, la disillusione e la conseguente presa di coscienza che ne è scaturita: fiero della sua ideologia, Derek aveva cercato alleati nel penitenziario, salvo poi accorgersi che i nazisti presenti erano mossi soltanto dall'opportunismo. Oltretutto, Derek aveva stretto amicizia con un simpatico e giullaresco ragazzo di colore, suo compagno di lavoro nella lavanderia. Al plateale distacco dal violento gruppo nazista seguì la punizione corporale: Derek venne sodomizzato sprezzantemente sotto le docce con la connivenza dei secondini. A seguito dell'umiliante atto, Derek decise di chiedere l'aiuto di Sweeney, un suo ex insegnante di colore dalla cui influenza intellettuale e liberal era stato messo in guardia anni prima dal padre. Compreso il motivo del ripensamento di Derek, Danny completa la relazione che Sweeney gli aveva comminato per punizione nel corso della mattinata scolastica e con il fratello inizia a staccare dal muro della loro abitazione tutta la serie di memorie del Nazismo che campeggiano inquietanti. Ma il mattino dopo, seppur con una nuova consapevolezza, Danny viene ucciso nei bagni della scuola da un ragazzo di colore con il quale il giorno precedente aveva avuto uno screzio
