Programme Overview

At dawn, in a muddy field next to a dairy farm, a car lies flipped on its side with its doors open. An animal sniffs hors d’oeuvres that had been prepared for a cocktail reception. Close by, two bodies lie on the frozen ground. A suburbanite and a farmer, both killed.

Chief investigator of the regional office, 37-year-old Constance Forest is sent to the scene. But the double killing is only the biginning of this murderous saga. Constance is divorced from a former detective turned dirty cop – who continues to give her plenty to worry about – made all the worse by the fact that they had three children together. Overworked as she is, Constance is lucky to live with her sister and confidant, Zoe, who takes care of her children and the family motel that their alcoholic and unpredictable father has neglected for years.

Constance must work with investigators from the city major crimes unit, Antoine Chevrier-Marseau and his boss Frédérick Bérubé in charge of leading the complex investigation. She can also count on her faithful and voluntary partner Jonas as well as on the services of some pregnant policer officers temporarily confined to less dangerous desk jobs. 

This police series takes us into the murky land of the suburbs where one dirty trick always deserves another. It depicts the lives of small-time criminals well on their way down the slippery slope and we gradually enter the inevitable game of cat and mouse between cops and criminals. A game that no one ever emerges from unscathed.
