Joe and Chrissie Fairburn (Paul Bettany and Stephen Graham) are both Police Detectives under pressure to live up to the reputation of their father, Lenny (Brian Cox), who for years ran the department and was a figurehead of the community. Once a bully to both his colleagues and sons, Lenny is now suffering from the early stages of dementia and is drifting from the brothers. Joe and Crissie's burning need to fill his shoes and do what they feel is expected of them, has terrible, unforeseen consequences. Soon they are investigating their own crime. But the fear of being caught by their friend and colleague Robert (Mark Strong) is nothing to the fractures this causes in the brothers' relationships and in their own minds. Chrissie, the younger brother, is consumed by his own conscience while Joe becomes delusional and terrified of what this might do to his beloved family; a family that his father raised him to protect at all costs.
