The show follows a crime, usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points. The first half of the show concentrates on the investigation of the crime by the police, the second half follows the prosecution of the crime in court.
Jesse L. Martin,
The series shows the workings of the judicial system, beginning with the arraignment and continuing through the lawyers process of building a case, investigating leads and preparing witnesses and defendants for trial.
The film begins with a murder. However, the Captain is with the detectives this time and is shocked to hear the show's trademark sound whenever a dramatic moment occurs! So, he orders the men to drop everything else they are doing and find out who's making that annoying sound!
This short film was obviously made on a shoestring budget and it makes no pretenses about this. The film obviously was not made in New York and the actors bear no similarity to the ones from "Law & Order". However, it IS pretty clever and the ending is very, very good--well worth the 4 minutes of your life you'll spend watching it! Provided you've seen any of the episodes of the original show (heck, after being on TV for 20 years, most Mesai tribesmen and residents of Tierra del Fuego have probably seen it by now!), you'll enjoy this gentle little film.
