A black cop. A white criminal defense attorney.
Coming from extreme opposite ends of a cultural divide in the whitest major city in America, one is sworn to put away the bad guys, while the other defends those charged with murder, rape, and other heinous crimes. Their combustible relationship erupts in bigotry and hatred in their first encounter. But years later, when the two foes collide again, an improbable friendship binds them together. Hearts are changed as the two men of faith declare their intent to love one another as brothers during a deadly and racially charged time on the streets of Portland, Oregon. Their decades-long relationship and willingness to share their story has inspired multitudes around the world to build authentic and loving relationships—no matter the color of their skin.
