The ´propulsive, haunting´ and ´gripping´ (Oprah) rediscovered classic that exposes the dark heart of America for an inncocent Black man on the run from the police
Fred Daniels, a black man, is randomly picked up by the police after a brutal murder in a Chicago suburb. Taken to the local precinct, he is tortured -- until he confesses to a crime he didn´t commit.
But when he sees his chance, Fred Daniels, makes a run for it. With the world now against him, there is only one place left to hide: Underground. Taking residence in the sewers below the streets of Chicago, Fred´s new vantage point takes him on a journey through America´s unjust, and inhumane underbelly.
