Set in the Los Angeles
Police Department in 1992, "Dark Blue" is a thriller that takes
place just days before the acquittal of four white officers in the beating of
black motorist Rodney King and the subsequent L.A. riots. In this racially
charged climate, the LAPD's elite Special Investigations Squad is assigned a
quadruple homicide. As they work the case, detective Eldon (Kurt Russell),
tutors SIS rookie Bobby (Scott Speedman) in the realities of police
intimidation and corruption.
