From executive producer Spike Lee comes a controversial film that taps into one of the most explosive issues of our time. With a powerful cast including Eriq LaSalle, Ving Rhames and Vondie Curtis-Hall, DROP Squad is a blistering look at a different form of social unrest--that of African Americans "selling out" their race for personal gain.

The DROP (Deprogramming and Restoration Of Pride) Squad is an outlaw organization that abducts and "deprograms" African Americans who exploit and/or deny their cultural heritage. Its latest target is Bruford Jamison, Jr. (LaSalle), an advertising executive who creates ads the Squad considers racially offensive. But as the group's persuasive methods become increasingly violent, its charismatic leader (Curtis-Hall) must wrestle with a disturbing question: Has his organization lost its way as surely as the brothers and sisters it seeks to reform?
