On the hottest day of the year - racial tensions are bubbling in a Brooklyn neighbourhood. This pressure cooker turns violent when a pizza shop owner and a black customer get into an altercation over the restaurant's all-Italian Wall of Fame, and suddenly this Bedford-Stuyvesant city block is ready to descend into total civil war. Everyone's got an axe to grind - but who is going to do the right thing?
Spike Lee found acclaim and success with this - his fourth feature film - considered by many critics as the very best of that year, and still visually and culturally powerful.
