A white motorcycle cop gets a flat tire on the freeway and ends up meeting Grace, a black female mechanic, at her auto shop. As a rookie, he wants to keep the flat off the books to save face. Despite their differences, an understanding begins to develop. But when Grace's son shows up and meets the description of a suspected car thief, a Tragedy of the 21st Century is set in motion.
