It is the roaring '20s in Chicago. The federal government enacts the Volstead Act. This does not stop the activities of the underground world, both in the coloured and white side of town. Helen Williams is an astute, but bashful upper class coloured detective who wields her heirloom magnifying glass more than she brandishes a gun. She goes undercover with her partner, Stephen Patterson, to further investigate murders where a vacant field is used as a dumping ground. She is surprised to know who was the head of operations all along. The suspects all lead to the illegal underground establishment--a speakeasy. Williams learns the latest dance crazes, fashion and even hairstyles of the atypical flapper. Yet, at least one person can readily tell that she does not belong in the illegal club. Helen meets Thaddeus, a handsome Englishman who courts her. Thaddeus eventually proposes. On the final night of her investigation, Williams uses a secret passageway to confront the female 'executioner'. The detectives, Thaddeus and the mastermind of a criminal organization confront one another in an upper suite of the speakeasy. Who will leave alive?
