Officer Sancho (Clifton Collins Jr.) is a former gangbanger turned-LAPD. He and his partner, Officer Salim Adel (Cuba Gooding Jr.) are at odds because he suspects Sancho is prepared to reveal plans to steal money from drug dealers to Internal Affairs that would indict Adel and the captain of his department (Keith David). Sancho is further plagued by the shooting death of an innocent by-stander. He is haunted by this and strives to absolve himself of this crime.

Adel is a coarse character who has no love for his job. His disgust with the daily grind of dealing with crooks as well as honest citizens is clear -- he wears his name tag upside down --, but that is the least of his transgressions. He steals a cellular phone from someone who had simply asked the officers for directions. Later that day Adel fondles a young woman while harrassing young people in the Venice Beach area. The woman vows in Spanish to kill Adel.

On this same day that Sancho is to appear before Internal Affairs, a lieutenant (Cole Hauser) demands that the two cops take a large bag of evidence from custody to frame the competition for a local drug kingpin. Sancho has to carefully weigh his options in dealing with his partner, the department, the various criminals involved, and the array of probably deadly consequences that may befall him.
