Treat Williams plays Danny Ciello, a cop who agrees to cooperate with a federal investigation into NYPD corruption. Torn between his pledge to root out crooked cops and his loyalty to his partners, Ciello becomes increasingly isolated. “After the film starts to turn itself over in your mind, it becomes a much deeper piece, a film about how difficult it is to go straight in a crooked world without hurting people you love.”—Roger Ebert
