Product Description:

In this urban thriller the accidental shooting of a six-year-old during an altercation between cops and a drug dealer shakes a New York City mayor's office to its core, as the resulting investigation unveils the seamy truths behind political power-brokering and backroom deals.

Plot Synopsis:

"City Hall" provides an insider's look into big city politics, as seen through the eyes of young, idealistic deputy mayor Kevin Calhoun.
When an off-duty cop and a mob-connected drug dealer engage in a shootout, a stray bullet kills a young Black boy. But the incident enmeshes charismatic NYC mayor John Pappas and his right-hand man Kevin in a web of widespread corruption, involving fellow politicians, the mob, the police, and the judicial system. The resulting scandal has repercussions for many of the key players and changes New York's political landscape -- and the lives of Pappas and Calhoun -- forever.
