DEEP NIGHTS is a true story of the battle that is waged every night on the streets of America, a gritty, raw inside look at the everyday lives of the police officers who suit up, put on the badge and gun and go out each night to protect the streets and neighborhoods of their beats. It is a moving story of one officer's journey from an idealistic fresh young recruit to a jaded, battle-scarred sergeant. Chronicling the thrill and triumph of risking life and limb to capture dangerous criminals, the frustration of an overworked, failing justice system, the lives of victims shattered by drugs and violence, and seeing death too close and personal, this is a brutally honest, no punches pulled story of entrenched bureaucracy and corruption, the scandals the public never hears about, and the quiet heroism of cops on their nightly beat. Against it all is the backdrop of the lives of the men and women in uniform; the humor, the hardship, the personal struggles, and the camaraderie that forms an unbreakable bond in this profession they simply call "the Job."
