|Summary, etc.:|| The US Attorney's Office for the Central District of California is responsible for enforcing the federal law of the U.S. for an area that is larger than 14 states, and has a population of more than 5 million people. Here follow Lizzie Scott as she untangles an excessive force case against a cop, all while balancing agency turf battles, secret grand jury proceedings, inter-office rivalries and on-the-make prosecutors. If she indicts the deputy, she faces death threats from the police, if she loses the case, a killer will go free and her career will be destroyed. It's the ultimate insiders look into the nuts-and-bolts of a federal civil rights prosecution, with fascinating legal and moral issues.
