L.A.P.D. from the inside. You feel the terror, the stress that they are under. And to young officers–Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaaland) and Zavala (Michael Pena) patrol the city’s crime-studded streets in south central LA. You watch through footage taken from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and civilians. You get a devastating portrait of the city’s gang-ridden corners, the police who risk their lives there every day, and the terrible price they and their families are forced to pay.
