Synopsis
In 1963 while making a routine traffic stop, two LAPD officers are held up at gunpoint and taken to a deserted onion field, where one of the officers is executed and the other escapes. The murderers are soon arrested, but due to their manipulation of the legal system, manage to postpone prosecution for years.
