            During the late-1990’s, there was a dual system of justice in Atlanta.  Attractive prosecutor LaPrecious Rhodes enforced criminal justice and a murderous female vigilante named “Serena” enforced street justice.  With the talented Rhodes, criminals lost their freedom; with merciless Serena, however, they lost their lives.


            Local homicide detective John Cronin battled Serena’s street justice with an intense passion.  Serena became an obsession not just for him but for another detective and a member of the public defender’s office as well.  Through it all, Rhodes found herself in a precarious position:  for each case she lost in criminal court, Serena won later on in the street court.  Where would the battle end?  That’s a question of intent.
