Under the neon lights in a gay-friendly neighborhood of New York City, four young African-American lesbians are violently and sexually threatened by a man on the street. They defend themselves against him, and are charged and convicted in the courts and in the media as a “Gang of Killer Lesbians.” With a deep compassion for its subjects tempering its outrage over the indignities they’ve suffered (deplorable conduct of unscrupulous reporters and callous police officers), the film poses a troubling question: How would have this unfolded had they had been four straight white women?
