LOGLINE: A disgraced LA cop is chosen to lead a task force against a local crime syndicate and uncovers a conspiracy of corruption in his own department.


Desmond Mitchell is the new sheriff in the town. The place is overrun by drug dealers, resulting in high murder rates. He is seeking justice after losing his son to drugs. However, most of the police force is corrupt and involved with criminals. As he gets closer to solving the crimes, he faces sabotage. The justice system itself is against him. His persistence becomes inconvenient, and he becomes the target of multiple murder attempts. He is alone in his fight, but he refuses to give up. After losing his wife and son, he has nothing left to lose.




POLICE STATION This is the main setting of the movie. Desmond has a team of officers, detectives, and colleagues to assist him in solving the cases, but he can only trust a few individuals in the station. Many people there are working for the criminals, reporting his actions and sabotaging his efforts.

STREETS Desmond often finds himself on the streets, chasing suspects and investigating locations pointed out by witnesses in search of clues. However, the town has become unsafe for him due to the Red Flag gang constantly chasing him. Desmond is unsure who he can trust anymore.

DESMOND’S APARTMENT He resides in a small apartment all by himself. Desmond is a widower without children. Unfortunately, his apartment is not a secure place as the Red Flag gang is aware of its locations and could set up an ambush at any given moment.

RESTAURANT Every morning, Desmond typically enjoys breakfast at a humble nearby restaurant. He usually has an egg sandwich and some coffee. It is at this establishment where he meets Laura, a waitress, and eventually falls in love with her.

THE RED FLAG is the name of the largest drug trafficking group in town, led by Glenn, who is famously known as “The Sting”. Glenn is highly intelligent, influential, and wealthy, with control over the local police force.

Desmond Mitchell (Brendan Fehr)  is a sheriff who is known for being diligent in his work. He's a hard worker. However, he has experienced a personal tragedy as he tragically lost his son to drug addiction. The devastating loss took a toll on his wife as well, causing her to fall seriously ill and eventually pass away. As a result, Desmond felt completely adrift and struggled to concentrate on his duties, eventually suffering a breakdown. To shield him from further hardships, his boss decided to relocate him to a different district. Driven by the memory of his family and determined to uphold their values, Desmond decided to start anew, dedicating himself to combating drug abuse and preserving his family's legacy.


Laura Martinez (Danielle Harris) is a hard-working waitress from a humble family. She resides in a neighborhood that is controlled by criminals, causing adversity for her family. Her younger brother is contemplating a life of crime, and her parents are constantly under threat. Initially, Laura was skeptical of Desmond's offer to assist her and took some time to develop trust in him. In their first encounter, she was infuriated with the police and expressed her anger over their lack of help. 


Sgt. Julie Davis (Leah Pipes) is a colleague of Desmond's, working closely with him as his assistant. Davis is a highly experienced officer at the station who is familiar with everyone and possesses extensive knowledge of the town. 


Gargos (Mickey Rourke) is the leader of the Red Flag gang and the local crime boss.

Jonah Martinez (Anthony Del Negro) Jonah is Laura's younger brother. He comes from a poor background and has some friends who have joined the mafia. While he himself is not a criminal, he sees getting involved with them as a way to make money and protect his family. Additionally, he possesses information that could help Desmond locate the Red Flag gang, but Laura is opposed to the idea due to the potential dangers involved.  


Willie (Ryan Francis) is an elderly individual who resides on the streets.

Desmond Mitchell, a sheriff grieving the recent loss of his wife and son to drug-related tragedies, became too consumed by depression to continue working. In an attempt to help him recover, his boss transferred him to a different district.


In this new town, Desmond encountered both friendly and unfriendly coworkers at the police station. Some urged him to return to his hometown, while others seemed upset about him becoming the new sheriff. 


Desmond settled into a small apartment and frequented a nearby restaurant for breakfast. It was there that he met a beautiful young woman named Laura. However, their initial conversation revealed Laura's disappointment with the police force, as she believed they were corrupt and failed to protect the citizens. Consequently, Laura did not trust Desmond and desired to keep her distance from him.


Despite his struggles, Desmond felt a deep desire to combat crime and prevent others from suffering like his son did. He also wanted to prove to Laura that he had good intentions. 


Desmond initiated a quest against crime by rallying his fellow officers to search for evidence. He tirelessly requested files, conversed with colleagues, and patrolled the streets to gather information. Through interrogations, he started to uncover hints and eventually arrested a minor member of the Red Flag gang. However, this small victory was short-lived when the thug was released from prison. 


Those at the police station warned Desmond to halt his pursuit. Subsequently, a series of issues arose, including the disappearance of evidence, acts of sabotage, and other problems. The other police officers displayed negligence, and various items mysteriously vanished from Desmond's office. He even experienced a flat tire and numerous other challenges. The situation began to turn against him, culminating in a failed attempt on his life. After surviving the murder plot, the FBI obtained a search warrant and found cocaine in his pocket. 

Desmond knew he had to defend himself, fully aware that someone was setting him up. Thankfully, his former boss intervened and facilitated his release. This incident made Desmond realize he was alone and would have to fight against everyone and everything. His first action was to ask Laura to go into hiding, as it was no longer safe for her to be around. The Red Flag gang would try to harm anyone connected to him. 


Determining that he couldn't rely on others, Desmond chose to work independently, patrolling the streets armed for self-defense. However, he fell into an ambush in his apartment, and the time approached for him to confront "The Sting." It became evident that there was a member of the police force involved in these events, someone whom Desmond would have never suspected. Nevertheless, he refused to abandon his pursuit of justice, even if it meant sacrificing his life.
