Considered a political liability, the two are kept busy on small-time cases by their suspicious NYPD commanders, but a chance encounter with an out-of-his-depth rich kid in the ghetto gives them a chance to get back in the game. The trouble is, it means going far beyond the law… which is what almost got them killed last time around!
