A family of police officers - patriarch, two sons, and a son-in-law - deals with corruption in a precinct in Washington Heights. Four officers die in an ambush at a drug dealer's apartment.

In 2001, Mark Wahlberg and Hugh Jackman were in talks to star. Production was scheduled to begin in February 2002.

Jimmy's (Colin Farrell) death scene was originally supposed to have Ray (Edward Norton) let him go into the crowd to be accosted by the angry mob and then the audience would assume that he died. Director Gavin O'Connor knew he needed a more powerful ending and decided to have Jimmy be beaten to death in front of Ray to add a sort of sympathy for the character Jimmy.
