Over the course of four days, a brutal murder and a racially charged trial trigger a chain of events that resonate throughout Los Angeles.
DARK BLUE is a dramatic thriller set within the Los Angeles Police Department in April 1992, just days before the acquittal of four white officers in the beating of black motorist Rodney King and the subsequent LA riots. Amidst this potentially charged atmosphere, the LAPDıs elite Special Investigations Squad (SIS) is assigned a high-profile quadruple homicide at a South Central liquor store.
As they work the case, veteran detective Eldon Perry (Kurt Russell), known for his tough street tactics and fiery temper, tutors SIS rookie Bobby Keough (Scott Speedman) in the grim realities of police intimidation and corruption. Meanwhile, Assistant Chief Holland (Ving Rhames), the only man in the department willing to stand up to the SIS, threatens to end Perryıs brand of single handed "justice" on the Los Angeles streets. While navigating through the tumultuous neighborhoods of South Central LA, Perry and Keough must track down cold-blooded killers and face their own demons, which prove to be more ruthless than the criminals they pursue.
