Officer Down

Synopsis: In Bridgeport, Connecticut, Detective David 'Cal' Callahan is a family man, married to Alexandra with a teenage daughter, Lanie. Cal has an unscrupulous past, drug and alcohol addicted, and he was reborn when he was shot by a drug dealer and saved by a stranger. When a stranger meets Cal in a bar, he tells Cal that he was the one who saved him and gives the journal of his deceased daughter to Cal. He tells Cal that she committed suicide after she was beaten up and raped by Angel, a regular at the night-club where she danced, owned by the drug dealer Royce Walker. Cal investigates Angel and when he sees the man in his car in front of the school where Lanie studies, he believes that Angel is a pedophile and Cal decides to take action. But he finds that he is a marionette and someone is pulling the strings and watching him dance.

to be thankful for.

If I were you,

I'd consider myself

the luckiest man on the planet.

Wipe the slate.

Oh, that guy who saved you...

What about him?

You tell me.

He was the only witness

to what really went down.

I don't remember

anything about him.


Ah, well.

Too bad.

Been meaning to come see you.

Cal, the church isn't just

for the bad times.

Yeah, I know.

What about your nightmares?

Yeah, still having those.

I don't know, Father.

I disrespected

the woman that I love,

violated my oath

to protect and serve.

Just don't know

why I got a second chance.

Or who've I got

to thank for that chance.

This good Samaritan,

I'm sure the good Lord

will cross your paths someday.

I hope so.

Are you still drinking?


I've been sober

for almost two years,

ever since the shooting.

Can't tell you

I'm not craving it, though.


- Hey, I mean it.


David Callahan?


You don't remember me?


How would I know you?

My name is Sergei,

Sergei Dronov.

I'm sorry.

How do we know each other?

We met once before...

...on the corner

of Water and Frontage.



- Hey!



Hang in there, buddy.

You're going to be just fine.

My wife, tell her I'm sorry.

Tell her yourself, okay?


- Please.

You hear those sirens?

They'll be here any second.

Just hold on, okay?

So why'd you leave?

You just vanished.

I didn't know who you were

or what you were involved in.

I went on TV. I was begging

for somebody to come forward.

Where I come from,

it is best not to get involved

with the police.

I didn't even tell my wife

about what happened that night.

So why now?

Because of this.


Yeah? LaRussa.

- Hey, Lieu, it's Cal. You busy?
