It's 1988 in the once-affluent Washington Heights neighborhood of New York, and crack cocaine is king. Reinaldo Arenas is the brutal leader of the reigning Dominican gang selling the drug in that area, and Assistant District Attorney Frank Corda is the man assigned to take him down. Armed with a task force of DEA agents and NYPD detectives, Corda must negotiate the perilous world of politics, drug kingpins, and opposing police entities in his bid to rid Washington Heights of the drug scourge.
Inspired by true events, and alternating between intrigue and action, Fallen City captures an iconic era in the history of New York and paints a human story on the canvas of one of its biggest challenges.
