The 1989 movie is set on the hottest day of the year in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district of Brooklyn, N.Y., where racial tensions are growing in a predominately black neighborhood.
A Korean grocery, Sal's Pizzeria and Mookie, Sal's delivery boy, manage always to be at the center of the action. Everyone's hate and bigotry smolders and builds until it explodes into violence.
