As Jake goes about his daily routine, he sees incidences of racism around him which are perplexing to him because he never had experienced them himself. But all this changes one day, when one of his white co-workers asks if he would be interested in a date. When Jake turns her down, she becomes upset. She concocts an incident at work which gets Jake fired from his job. This incident begins Jake's experience with racial bias. During Jake's job search, he continues to be bombarded with racial incidents from the police, security guards, job interviewers, and store owners. By the end of the film Jake is a changed man, frustrated, angry, and exhausted from all the racial bias he has experienced. However, Jake's luck changes when he encounters a wanted serial killer.
