NOPD rookie Alicia West (Naomie Harris) captures the murder of a drug dealer on her body cam. What’s more disturbing is that the murder has been committed by her partner and a squad of dirty police officers (Frank Grillo, Reid Scott, Beau Knapp).
Unable to get help from her former community or the police department she’s sworn to, West allies herself with a stranger (Tyrese Gibson) in an attempt to expose the murder while a local gang puts out a bounty on West's life.
