British crime drama starring Paul Bettany and Stephen Graham as police officer brothers who struggle to maintain their sense of morality while investigating a murder. With their father Lenny (Brian Cox) also an officer of the law in his heyday, policing seems to run in the veins of Joe and Chrissie Fairburn (Bettany and Graham). However, when a young girl is discovered murdered - the most horrific crime to afflict the community in recent memory - the brothers face a stern test of their mettle. A local convicted paedophile Jason Buleigh (Ben Crompton) is their prime suspect but they struggle to locate concrete evidence of his involvement. Disturbed by the fact that his own daughter is around the same age as the murdered girl, Joe decides that using the strong-arm tactics favoured in his father's day is the way ahead. However, when they drive Jason out to a remote area one night in the hope of eliciting a confession events threaten to spiral out of control...
