In 1990s Albuquerque, Trudy and her husband plan to have a baby-until he gets killed in a drug-related drive-by shooting. In New York's Catskill Mountains, Chayse, her former neighbor, already motherless, is left totally alone when she loses her father and sister within a week. Two thousand miles apart, these hometown neighbors/victims of death and drug traffickers seek to assuage their grief by working and helping others. At first, their efforts turn on them: Chayse, still grieving and vulnerable, follows boyfriend guitarist Bryan to New York. There, he gets a gig for his Wildcatz Band. Unfortunately, it's through Pagano, leader of Los Grandes, a Godless drug dealing gang that's been terrorizing a city neighborhood.

Trying to rise above her grief, Trudy becomes a caring Home Health Aide and hospital nurse technician. She experiences a growing fury and desire for revenge against drug pushers. When neighbors elect her Block Captain she comes into close contact with both victims and law enforcement. Trudy's healing journey leads her back to New York where she and Chayse reunite. Will they each find their destiny and gain the peace they are searching for? Citizen Trudy and the Crackdown tells their powerful story; it's a cautionary tale of the times!
