Oddball cop and tough guy, Jack Cates is the only survivor of a cop shooting and in hunting down the murderer collects Reggie Hammond from jail for 48 hours. Hammond is oddly motivated to help. The killer is searching for his stash of cash. Cates and Hammond who have the Black-white, cop-crook thing to work out make surprisingly good partners as they navigate through the city looking for their suspect. Written by

Did You Know?
When Reggie takes the knife from the redneck, he closes it and places it on the bar with his right hand before breaking the glasses and being told where Billy Bear's girlfriend lives. When he turns around and talks to the people in the club, the knife is clearly still on the bar. He then walks out to the street where he takes it from his back left pocket and gives it to Cates.
