The green-eyed daughter of a Cuban patriot killed by Castro's firing squad; she has a tender spot for the city's underdogs, but is smart and tough enough to pursue a story no matter where it takes her. When cops on the midnight shift chase a black motorist, the fleeing man, a professional football hero, winds up dead. Britt's investigation reveals the tragic truth. As the city she loves explodes into a major riot, Britt is caught up in life-threatening events that bring about a shocking climax.
