A family's moral codes are tested when Ray Tierney investigates a case that reveals an incendiary police corruption scandal involving his own brother-in-law. For Ray, the truth is revelatory, a Pandora's Box that threatens to upend not only the Tierney legacy but the entire NYPD.
The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament - a path that puts the fighter on a collision corner with his older brother.
A clean-cut young lawyer meets a beautiful prostitute who drags him into a decadent dead-end world of sex and corruption. Good acting somewhat compensates for banal story. Content-wise, a rather tame film given its "NC-17" rating.
