After the victim's sister, a news anchor, starts threatening to release a series of reports highlighting the police's inadequacies, the mayor orders immediate action. Corrupt homicide detective Roman Stefan has crossed the line more than once. When his ailing father, a hero to the community, asks him to change his ways, Stefan reluctantly agrees. Assigned to a new case, he must come to grips with his evil nature and take on the broken justice system he was once a part of. Each step takes him down a shaky path that forces him to struggle with his inner demons and the promise he made to his father.
