From the sight of a police officer this movie depicts the life in New York's infamous South Bronx. In the center is "Fort Apache", as the officers call their police station, which really seems like an outpost in enemy's country. The story follows officer Murphy, who seems to be a tuff cynic, but in truth he's a moralist with a sense for justice. Written by

You want to go out tonight, have a drink?
Two hundred cops ask me out every day. Why should I say yes to you?
Cause you say yes to all the others.
Well I guess that makes you the only cop in the Bronx I say no to.
