Assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge) arrives in 1990s Boston to find a city filled with violent criminals, corruption, and bigotry. And to make matters worse, local law enforcement agencies support their operations. To combat a family of Charlestown armored vehicle robbers, Ward forms an odd alliance with FBI agent Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon), and the two struggle to bring justice and ultimately alter the city’s whole criminal justice system.
The first season of the movie focuses on the relationship between Decourcy Ward and Jackie Rohr, two opposing lawmen, as they battle armored vehicle robbers and the city’s corrupt court system. The death of Rohr’s deputy U.S. attorney in the second season caused a gap between the two characters.
