It's 1978 in the Canadian Maritimes, five years into David Slaney's fifteen year conviction for drug dealing. RCMP detective Roy Patterson, whose life is deteriorating in all aspects, joins forces with Slaney in an operation to nab who was Slaney's friend and drug partner, Brian Hearn, Slaney who wants payback for Hearn abandoning him. As the US DEA is also after Hearn, Patterson joins forces with DEA agent KC Williams on the case.

There's the multi-layered stories... none outdone by the incredibly compelling estranged relationship / inescapable feelings between Slaney and the lovely woman and her child.
There's the real to life characters. Paul Gross.... just ROCKS ! No, definitely not a perfect hero cop... a true imperfect human being.
My favourite television program of all time, is of course, "The Fugitive" from 1963 - 1967.
CBC's creation of "Caught"... is a VERY close second !
