A routine domestic disturbance call sends two Chicago cops -childhood friends and now partners- on a harrowing journey that will test their loyalties and change their lives. This noir drama combines the grittiness of The Wire with the unreliable narrators of True Detective as it explores the forces that bond us and the forces that tear us apart, amid a backdrop of racism, police brutality, the war on drugs, affirmative action, and life on the rough streets of Chicago.
Famously produced on Broadway with Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig (in a rare 100% sold-out run of shows) this rollercoaster-ride of suspense and surprises takes the good cop/bad cop genre to a level all its own. by exposing the humor and humanity that resolutely beats within a heart of darkness.
