Rookie Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) meets the partner from hell in (Denzel Washington), a corrupt cop who challenges his notions of the system by disregarding all rules. This translates to putting a gun to Hoyt's head, forcing him to smoke marijuana laced with PCP, involving him in numerous crimes, and finally leaving him to be murdered. That only one of them escapes with his life doesn't make them the best-matched pair — but it does make for a heck of a day.
