Synopsis: When narcotics detective Eugene 'Mack' McCanick discovers that a seemingly harmless young criminal, Simon Weeks, has been released from prison, it triggers a firestorm of paranoia and violence. Mack and his partner, Floyd, mercilessly hunt down Weeks for unknown reasons over the course of one long, hot day. The closer Mack gets to his prey, the more we understand that his frenzy stems from a truth from the past, which only Weeks can expose. The truth is revealed in the explosive finale, which culminates in a surprisingly emotional confrontation not just between McCanick and Weeks, but also between McCanick and himself.

Captain, the state attorney's guy is here.

I'll be right out.

Mack, is it understood?

All right.


Yes, yes.


Okay, good.

I saw your brother

at the captain's dinner last night.

Yeah... yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

I know he's an asshole,

but he told me that Chris

is getting oriented.

They put him on the street Monday.

I know.

You know? Why, you been speaking to Chris?

No, he wrote back my letter.

I'm seeing him for dinner tonight, 8:00.

That's great.

Forget about Weeks. Make good your son.

Oh, Jim, that's one f*ck of a tie.

Heads up. Cop.

What's up?

That's what's up.

Which one of you's Simon?

Simon. Which one?

What do you want?

I just want to ask a couple questions.

I'm homicide, not vice.

Gotta go, Simon. See you later.

How can I help you?

How can you help me?


I'm investigating the murder

of Joe Langley.

You know who I'm talking about?

Yeah, congressman.

People say you knew him.


Who said that?

Is it true?

Look, kid, I'm not pointing fingers.

I'm just asking questions.

Yeah, he picked me up once.

just once?

Yeah, must've found somebody

he liked better.

They shop around, you know.

Okay, who was it?

Who was it?

Raven. Raven.

Is that his first or his last?

Man, Raven's not his real name.

It's a tag. I don't know his real name.

Okay, I see.

Do you know how often Raven

And congressman Langley

got together?

If you had to guess?

If I had to guess?

Yeah, if you had to guess.

Probably three or four nights a week.

They'd go off some place together.

Three or four nights a week.

Where? Hotel?

Raven wouldn't say. All right?

Raven always kept pretty quiet about Joe.


Joe, huh? Yeah, Joe.

Raven's crazy. Nobody fucks with him.

Would you think that Raven

could've killed congressman Langley?
