Synopsis
New York City detective Daniel Ciello agrees to help the United States Department of Justice help eliminate corruption in the police department, as long as he will not have to turn in any close friends. In doing so, Ciello uncovers a conspiracy within the force to smuggle drugs to street informants to get their cooperation, and also learns that many of the officers are using drugs and open to taking bribes. Ciello is successful at rooting out the problem cops, but from then on is seen as a traitor by his fellow officers.
