When an African-American cop shoots and kills an unarmed white college student, a small town in North Carolina is turned upside-down. Before the town has a chance to cope with this tragedy, the neglected murder of an African-American teen is brought to light, opening wounds that threaten to tear the community apart. As Detective Ashe Akino and Special Prosecutor Preston Terry set out to find the truth, they begin to grapple with the media attention, public debate and social unrest that come with such volatile cases.
When a controversial video of Deputy Beck leaks, Ashe and Preston face a new challenge to find the source and expose whether or not it was a set-up. Amidst Beck's new scandal, the police force and the community begin to look at him differently. Meanwhile, suspicion rises around Pastor Janae after it's revealed that she had a public run-in with Joey Campbell, before his death. Also, Ashe and Preston debate whether or not they're ready to take on the cases of both Jesse Carr and Joey Campbell, and then discover that a witness in Joey's murder may have gone missing.
Ashe and Preston focus in on reliable evidence in both investigations, sending them first to Jesse Carr's old college campus, then on a dangerous manhunt for the only two credible witnesses in Joey Campbell's case. The political implications of both cases begin to unfold, as Pastor Janae urges Governor Eamons to do more for the poorest communities in Gate Station, leading her to the Campbell household. Meanwhile, Eamons' biggest competition, Penn Moder, seeks out Jesse's mother, Alicia.
After Cory opens up about what he witnessed the night of Joey Campbell's death, Ashe and Preston must decide if his word will be enough to go up against the entire sheriff's department. To help demonstrate the worthiness of their case, the two go after any substantial evidence they can find that will prove the deaths of Joey Campbell and Jesse Carr are somehow linked. Meanwhile, in an effort to help the poor communities in Gate Station, Governor Eamons introduces her new education initiative, but only at a certain cost to her campaign.
