The Glass Shield

When Teddy Woods (Ice Cube) is pulled over by the police just because he is black, rookie cop Michael P. Boatman, anxious to fit in with his white peers, lets it pass. But when a gun is found under Teddy’s car seat and he winds up on the road to Death Row, Boatman encounters a crisis of conscience that tears him up inside. (35mm)
