When his new partner Roger Baron urges him to accept the case of Shu Kai Kim, a Korean boy sentenced to life eight years before who's just killed a neo-nazi militant in prison, Eddie Dodd is at first reluctant but he'll soon take an avid interest in the case as it seems that Shu isn't guilty of the first murder he was convicted for. Eddie is persuaded that his client has been framed and is innocent of that crime.
