He'd be the perfect criminal if he wasn't the perfect cop. Larry Fishburne stars as Russell Stevens, Jr., a maverick Cleveland cop with a turbulent past. Hand-picked by the DEA to infiltrate an international cocaine cartel based in Los Angeles, Stevens goes undercover as John Q. Hull, a bold new player with seemingly little to lose. As a cop, he swore to follow orders, to uphold justice and to observe the law . . . but now the rules have changed.
