Army veteran Michael Collins is looking for a new start after a personal tragedy.
Now a recruit officer fresh out of the police academy, Michael has taken his first step in becoming a Milwaukee Police Officer.
His next hurdle is passing twelve weeks of field training in the most dangerous part of town.
Welcome to the Brew City Blues.
Gangsters, sex workers, murderers, and thieves are just the external elements he will have to deal with to make it through field training. Michael is thrown into the fast-moving pace of a rookie’s life that takes him inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims, and their families.
Twenty-hour workdays and the department’s internal affairs unit making him feel like he has a bullseye on his back adds to the pressure.
Can this army vet with a troubled past survive the toughest part of his training in the Milwaukee Police Department and come to terms with the heartbreak from his past?
