Synopsis

What does an honest cop do when his bosses are on the side of the lawbreakers?

Rufus Sewell stars as Zen, a Roman police detective hailing from Venice, where "Zen" is a local shortening of the name Zeno. Separated from his wife and living with his mother, he is too frazzled by his job to think about romance.
