When a New York City cop (Nick Nolte) commits a cold-blooded murder and rigs the scene to make it look like self-defense, the district attorney (Timothy Hutton) assigned to investigate the case uncovers a police department split by race and riddled with corruption. Director Sidney Lumet (Serpico) delivers a searing look at extraordinary evil perpetrated in the name of the common good.
