A haunted New Orleans cop realizes that one of his oldest friends may be the ringleader of a vicious crime ring while teaming with a seasoned detective to investigate a brutal underworld killing. Detective Sean Reilly (Johnny Strong) is the head of the distinguished "Street Crimes" crime squad in the Big Easy. He's still recovering from the recent death of his son when his wife walks out on him, and his partner is killed during a brutal ambush. Sympathetic yet reluctant to lose one of his best men, Captain Trehan (Tom Berenger) partners Sean with Detective William Ganz (Kevin Phillips). Their mission: sniff out the clues in a brutal gangland slaying, and brink the killer to justice. Later, as all evidence points to Colin (Sean Patrick Flanery), a lifelong friend of Sean's and a defense contractor who has recently returned from the Middle East, the stakes suddenly get higher than anyone could have anticipated.
