A woman is murdered and the only witness to the crime is missing. Danny Cavanaugh, a white cop raised in Detroit’s inner city gets the seemingly routine case. He soon uncovers a conspiracy that reaches from the ravaged streets to the pinnacle of power. Detroit’s mayor, a young, brash and arrogant politician assigns Chief of Police Tony Hill (Cold Medina) to back Danny off the investigation but not before provocative text messages between the mayor and the dead girl are uncovered, drawing suspicion and causing a political and media firestorm. The sex-laced missives lead Danny to more incriminating evidence and give political enemies evidence for criminal charges against the controversial mayor. Jesse King (Double Dead) prosecutes the case and the mayor hires Danny best friend, defense attorney Marshall Jackson (Supreme Justice) to stave off a municipal coup d’etat in the embattled city. Danny runs the case’s twisted path, chasing shady characters and deadlier killers. Plunged into the dark shadow of urban reality, Danny finds more than murder; he finds Citycide, the death of Detroit. As Danny gets closer to the truth, his life becomes forfeit and everyone he loves hangs in the balance. Pushed to the limit, Danny goes on the offensive, bringing the fight to his enemies. And at his moment of truth, Danny will have to do more than solve the case. He will have to save the life of his beloved city.
