One June night, in a small town gripped by a sweltering heat wave, a young man is forced off the road and into the river.  Robert Bell, a disillusioned local journalist with a dry sense of humour and an escalating drink problem, leaves behind the banality of his quiet office to investigate the mysterious death.  Simmering racial tensions in the town threaten to boil over and local Serbian immigrants become the easy targets for blame.
