DETAILS AT 10
Inner-city Chicago: After identifying a drive-by shooter’s car on live TV, a young girl named Little Butter disappears. Haunted by her responsibility for the child’s fate and heartbroken at seeing her former South Side neighborhood devastated by crime, reporter Georgia Barnett desperately searches for the girl. Butting heads with tough detective Doug Eckart at every turn, Georgia enters dangerous territory where street violence escalates and informers turn up dead. Suddenly, this simple missing-persons case turns into a citywide effort to nab a notorious gang, and Georgia, Doug, and the Channel Eight News crew find themselves struggling to do what’s right in a city overcome by racism, fear, and hostility.
