Storyline

Steve Barker is a veteran police officer struggling to find any self-respect or connection with his young family. An encounter with a drug-addled Aboriginal, his wife's infidelities and a friend's dark secret forces Steve into a crisis of conscience and warps his previously straight-edged moral code completely out of shape. In the tradition of Serpico and Blue Murder, "Spike Up" offers a sobering meditation on police ethics and responsibility; and examines the power of institutional evil to permeate the individual. Written by Paul Gerard Kennedy
