Filmed on location in both Auckland and Sydney, the movie tells the story of Detective Sergeant Ihaka (Morrison), a no-nonsense cop in the Auckland PD.
After a very public incident involving a mugger and a baseball bat, Ihaka is shipped off to Sydney to attend an international symposium on policing techniques and finds himself partnered with Kirsty Finn (Rebecca Gibney), a by-the-book detective with the Australian Federal Police.
One of the exercises of the symposium is to review procedures used in past cases and Ihaka and Finn are given the unsolved case of the rape and murder of a model, where it was assumed that it was just a 'thrill kill'.
However, during the course of their review they find evidence that was previously ignored and suddenly they're not just reviewing the case - they are hot on the heels of the killer and up to their necks in blackmail, deceit and dangerous criminals who want their secret to remain hidden.
