Cops

Cops

Synopsis

Chris is a young police recruit with a special forces unit where the working atmosphere is rife with male rivalry, testosterone and peer pressure. On one of his first missions he shoots an aggressive man and is immediately celebrated as a hero. But the more his colleagues pat him on the back and protect him, the more he harbors doubts about whether he did the right thing. The very act of questioning the pact of brotherhood takes him down a dark and dangerous path.
