Харолд Бекър ("Море от любов", "Кметството") прави своя самостоятелен режисьорски дебют през 1979 с тази криминална драма по действителен случай. Двама полицаи са отвлечени и измъчвани, като единият е убит, а другият успява да избяга. Впоследствие убийците са заловени, но ловко манипулират съдебната система и успяват да се спасят от смъртна присъда. Оцелелият полицай изпада в тежка депресия и склонност към самоубийство. Джеймс Уудс получава номинация за Златен глобус за Най-добър актьор за превъплащението си в зловещия психопат Грегъри Пауъл.
