Hank Grotowski is a prison guard in Louisiana who is a blatant racist. He got his attitude from his father Buck (played by Peter Boyle), who lives with him. After assisting in the execution of a black prisoner, Hank Grotowski ends up helping the prisoner’s widow, a woman named Leticia Musgrove(played by Halle Berry). His racist attitudes dissolve and he falls in love with Leticia, in stark contrast to his father whose attitudes never wane.
