Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) - an ex-cop better known for making trouble than solving it - just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But first he gets roped into helping his old boxing coach and mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), with a promising amateur. That's Hawk (Winston Duke), a brash, no-nonsense MMA fighter convinced he'll be a tougher opponent than Spenser ever was. When two of Spenser's former colleagues turn up murdered, he recruits Hawk and his foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), to help him investigate and bring the culprits to justice. Inspired by Robert B. Parker's Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins.

How did you kill Officer Terrence Graham? Huh? What'd you do? Wrap his hand around the gun, make it look like a suicide? You have your boys hold him still for you? I mean, cops killing cops? When did that ever become okay?
Ah, well... so, what the fuck are you gonna do?
You know what I'm gonna do. You're goin' to prison. But first, I'm gonna teach you a little lesson.
Oh, yeah? What's that?
Oh, a cop in prison's gotta know how to fight. You take my word for that.
