Corrupt, brutal and arrogant – that’s Bruce Robertson. A man of miserable character, he’s chosen a career that best allows him to break the law unpunished – Bruce is a police officer. He’s constantly abusing his position of power and makes a sport out of implicating his colleagues, which he sees as incompetent amateurs, in intrigues of the most unpleasant kind. He treats the female sex, since his wife left him, with a rare form of condescension, and nobody is surprised when his alcoholism takes on increasingly excessive dimensions. When a Japanese tourist is murdered, Robertson catches the scent of promotion. His hunt for the laurels, however, sends him increasingly out of control, and his house of cards built on fraud and deceit finally threatens to collapse.
