When an armed robbery at a convenience store reveals a renowned cop killer is back in Sydney, Detective Sergeant Grace Gibbs (Rachel Griffiths) has the chance to finally catch her colleague’s murderer.

Detective Grace Gibbs is determined to catch notorious killer and armed robber, Corey Baxter (Ian Meadows) who murdered her junior officer a year ago. Grace has been left guilt-ridden and angry, her marriage in tatters, her career in jeopardy and in enforced anger-management at her inner-city cop shop. When Baxter returns to hold up a convenience store, Grace meets the shop assistant, Mani Dalir (Mojean Aria), an Iranian international student who has been terrorized by Baxter but has luckily escaped his bullet. Although clearly shaken, Mani is determined not to let Corey’s violent treatment of him get in the way of his dream of a happy future in Australia with his Chinese girlfriend, Bo-Lin (Xana Tang).

As Grace begins to track Baxter, her short fuse is tested when she’s allocated a junior detective to train — Charlie Fung (Yoson An). Charlie was a close friend of Lincoln’s (Lincoln Younes) and blames Grace for Lincoln’s death, so their partnership is off to a terrible start. Meanwhile, across town, Mani’s corrupt bosses conspire to buy a gun to protect their business. When the store is robbed again, this time with fatal consequences, Grace and Charlie discover that Corey Baxter may not be the only killer at large in the city…
