Wealthy Chicago businessman Philip Colbert is murdered in the Mississippi town of Sparta, where he is overseeing the construction of a factory. Police Chief Bill Gillespie takes charge of the investigation and one of his men, Officer Sam Wood, arrests a black suspect called Virgil Tibbs at a train station. Gillespie is racially prejudiced and jumps to the conclusion that Tibbs is fleeing the scene of the crime. In fact, Tibbs has an alibi and is a Detective Lieutenant from Philadelphia.
