Ten years ago Charlie was a cop on a beat and Marcus was a suspect in the Fuller Park section of Chicago. Ten years since their paths crossed, their lives have gone in different directions but questions remain: was it abuse? Brutality? Or solid police work? Charlie’s sister Charlotte is looking into the case for herself this time, and this particular evening she’s decided to bring Marcus home with her to really figure out what is what.
