synopsis
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.

filmmaker's note
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.
