Centred around the Baltimore drug scene, ‘The Wire’ tells both sides of the story. The inner-city drug dealers take on members of the police department including Detective James ‘Jimmy’ McNulty who is tasked with taking on the drug kingpin, Avon Barksdale. While Barksdale is dealing with his own bureaucracies like informants, his men getting robbed by rivals only to have their drugs resold, McNulty has his own problems to deal with in the hierarchy of public service. Corruption is rampant, detectives are beating up suspects and both sides want to be on top of the ‘food chain’.
