DETROIT HEROIC

           Dr. Matt Drummond is overwhelmed by police brutality and the racial suffering of men, women and children. Then the 1967 Detroit riot. Matt is as burned out as the city.   Forty-three civilians are dead.
           Obsessed with helping the victims he comes in conflict with the drug traffickers, numbers runners, rogue police, criminal abortionists and pimps. “The dealers of pain” frame him for an illegal abortion death.
           Dr. Drummond is pursued by Detroit homicide and the criminals who need him dead.
           An eclectic band of the street-wise: prostitutes, Black Panthers, Baptist ministers and professional fighters come together in a dangerous, desperate, long -shot attempt to save him.
