Gritty police drama based on a story by crime novelist James Ellroy (who also penned 'LA Confidential'), starring Kurt Russell as Eldon Perry, a veteran officer in the LAPD's Special Investigations Unit. Set in the spring of 1992 - just days before the acquittal of four white police officers for the beating of Rodney King and the subsequent LA riots - the film tells the story of Perry's personal struggle as the city around him erupts into racially-charged violence.
