When two NYPD patrolmen are called to assist a drunk and disorderly woman at 3:00am, their actions conflict with the oath they vowed to keep; to protect and serve the citizens of New York City. All characters appearing in this film are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

At a certain point something inside me says "ENOUGH!"
After seeing news article after news article of Police Officers hurting even sometimes killing
civilians, I think there was an explosion within me. I love New York City and I truly thank the
Police Officers who risk their lives everyday for sake of our wellbeing. It is a position that takes a
great deal of care and integrity. Which is probably why it bothers me so much when Officers
abuse their power and hurt us.
I wanted the viewers to feel as disturbed as I do with the thought of someone we trust, a Police
Officer, hurting us. In this world where we are desensitized from images of action and violence I
found it was less effective to show actual violence but powerful to sit with the perpetrators (two
NYPD Officers) after they may have hurt someone.
It is a quiet film that is meant to be powerful and thought provoking. Making this film is an effort to
make a positive change in the world.
