In the 1890's a wave of Sicilian emigrants arrive in New Orleans and are caught up in power-struggles for control of the docks. When the chief of police is murdered, suspicion falls upon the Sicilians, but of the nine immigrants brought to trial, none are convicted. Disgusted at the outcome of the trial, an angry mob of twenty-thousand people decides to take the law into their own hands, with shocking results. Based on a true story.
