In a spectacular operation, a gang succeeds in freeing a notorious criminal from his heavily armed escort. They dump their car in a neighborhood that local police have abandoned to dealers, mobsters and thugs. The neglected precinct's newly appointed chief detective Vincent Drieu is intrigued by the car and other insignificant connections nobody else ever saw because nobody else bothered to look.. Amysterious, charismatic figure, Drieu leads by example. He provokes jealousy, but gradually the cops on his team begin to feel like cops again. That’s lucky, because something big, very big, is about to hit them.
