Lawless

Constable John Lawless is a dedicated cop - but he's been undercover for too long. He's made friends with the people he's supposed to be arresting. And yes, he inhales. But he plans to put that all behind him. One more bust and he's going home. Back to his wife and his other life.

His plan goes badly wrong when there's an armoured van robbery and a security guard is shot. From the outside, it looks like Lawless helped to organise the crime. When an ambitious superior officer, determined to protect his own position, makes Lawless a scapegoat, Lawless enlists the help of friends from both sides of the law, and fights back with a daring plan to prove his innocence and bring the real culprits to justice?
