New York City homicide detective, Vincent LaMarca (Robert De Niro), has forged a long and distinguished career in law enforcement, making a name for himself as a man intensely committed to his work following the execution of his father for a child kidnapping case in the 1950’s.

But on his latest case, the stakes are higher for Vincent – the suspect he’s investigating is his own son Joey (James Franco).
