Synopsis

Television movie based on the true story of Jonathan Neumann, a young investigative reporter who won the Pulitzer Prize in the 1970s for exposing corruption in the Philadelphia police department. When Neumann hears stories about a secret cop vigilante group called "The Goon Squad," the city reporter drags his reluctant partner Phil Chadway and beautiful colleague Kate Johnson into the case, which they quickly discover is made up of a lot more than just rumors. Their entry into the story is the confession of a mentally impaired man who was beaten severely by the police. As the investigators probe the incident and begin to uncover ties to the mayor's office, the Goon Squad launches a campaign of scare tactics designed to intimidate them into dropping the story.
