When spoiled college kid Walter Wade (Christian Bale) kills a young black student, John Shaft (Jackson) makes the arrest.

But when Walter's wealthy father posts bail once again, Walter is back out on the streets and looking to put Shaft in a body bag. So are two of Shaft's corrupt colleagues, Jack Roselli and Jimmy Grovitch (Dan Hedaya and Ruben Santiago-Hudson), as welt as a Dominican drug lord, Peoples Hernandez (Jeffrey Wright) who wants revenge on Shaft for humiliating him in the neighborhood he rules.
