We're in a small town in the deep south of the USA in the late 1960s, not long after African-Americans gained full civil rights. After a murder of a prominent white citizen, a black man is arrested at the train station - and only released after he turns out to be a senior police officer from out of town named Virgil Tibbs. Working reluctantly alongside the white local police chief who distrusts his modern big city methods, Tibbs tries to solve the crime.
