The residents of Granby, Texas believed they lived in a racially tolerant town - that is, until someone hung a noose in the "Whites Only" tree. But this is just the beginning ... When Officers Wolfe and Fox begin their investigation, a series of unconnected events, a cheerleading scandal that unleashes overly protective parents, a march organized in protest against the arrest of a local black youth, and an underground dog-fighting ring is exposed. What's next? As violence erupts in this remote small town national attention further outrages white residents when Granby is portrayed as a typical racist southwest bunch of rednecks. Meanwhile, there is growing unrest in the town's Latino community after the murder of a Mexican immigrant is largely ignored. They are largely ignored, and they don't like it! But when the Nation of Islam march the streets of Granby, all hell breaks loose. With the eyes of the nation on them, the black, white and Mexican residents of Granby all want to air their views. That is worrisome by itself. Within the now - edgy Granby Police Department, there is a combination of curiosity and concern about what their own loose cannon, Officer Tina Wolfe, will do or say next. Get ready to laugh out loud and cheer for the Fox, the Wolfe .. and the goat.
