New York City, 1988. It was a city in turmoil, filled with crime and grime that was eating at the city's very core. The Nascondare family was built on honor, but now has become a web of secrets that threatens to shake the core of this proud family of New York City's finest men in blue. Jack Nascondare is a retired detective and father of two active detectives and the owner of Jack’s Hideaway Bar and Grill. His family is on the brink of self-destruction when values, lifestyles and truths are called into question. Johnny Nascondare and his brother Tommy couldn’t be any more different. Johnny, a hot headed, drug-addicted, prone-to-violence cop on the edge and Tommy, a hero, a role model, a pillar of the community...but with a secret that could rock the family and his career. As lives begin to unravel and more and more certainties become impossible to control, the very fabric of this family is tested. And as it becomes clear that Jack has a deep dark secret from his past as well, it is the very core of this father’s love and safeguarding his boys that has caused the dysfunction that has spiraled them all out of control.
