Tagline: When you're searching for a killer... the last suspect you want to see is your son.

Plot: New York City homicide detective Vincent LaMarca (ROBERT De NIRO) has forged a long and distinguished career in law enforcement, making a name for himself as a man intensely committed to his work. But on his latest case, the stakes are higher for Vincent – the suspect he’s investigating is his own son, Joey (JAMES FRANCO).

Vincent and Joey have been painfully estranged ever since Vincent divorced Joey’s mother and left the decaying boardwalks of Long Beach, Long Island for the anonymity of Manhattan and a successful career with the NYPD. He lives his life in solitude, keeping his girlfriend (FRANCES McDORMAND) at arm’s length. The closest relationship he maintains is with his partner, Reg (GEORGE DZUNDZA) – and Vincent makes sure that stops at the precinct door. As long as Vincent lives in the protection of the present, he doesn’t have to deal with the pain of his past.
