Plot – The spoiled rich university student Walter Wade kills a black student and John Shaft arrests him. The guy doesn't show up in court and leaves the country. Only two years later Shaft manages to bring him in jail. When his father pays his bail again, Walter puts himself in search of the detective to kill him. Shaft's corrupt colleagues, Jack Roselli and Jimmy Grovitch, and a Dominican drug dealer, Peoples Hernandez, want him dead as well. The policeman has on his side only Carmen, a colleague, and his friend Rasaan. In the meantime he must track down a murder's witness, Diane Palmieri, and get rid once and for all of the killers who are looking for him.
