The City of Wislow sits on the frayed elbow of California, sealed off by mountains and sea. Wes Lyedecker begins his first day as a cop there, brimming with the desire to ‘make a difference.’ His wildly cynical training officer, Thomas Bell, is unimpressed.
The cops confront a berserk biker tearing up his motel room. He is amped out of his skull on meth. This bloody confrontation propels them down a twisted path.
Wes learns lessons they never taught in the Academy as the two cops battle drug lords, the Chief of Police, the Mayor and the town’s richest man in their quest to stem the flood of methamphetamine that is tearing Wislow apart.
