Mulheisen isn't sure whether he should believe retired cop Grootka's theory that a pimp's recent murder is tied to a 1950's homicide and rape case. And with two new homicides and an assassination attempt on the mayor, he doesn't have time for old crimes and old cops. Until Grootka straps on his ancient .45 and sets out to teach the younger cop the chilling truth.
