Abstract:

Alain Chanier is a dapper businessman from Marseilles, France. He's actually a drug lord working on a big score. He wants to sell millions of dollars worth of 89% pure heroin. Salvatore Boca is a small-time hood who is his potential buyer. Boca is being tailed by two undercover New York City narcotics police officers, James 'Popeye' Doyle and Buddy 'Cloudy' Russo. The more Popeye and Cloudy dig, the closer they get. Chanier agrees to an attempt on Popeye's life that results in a brutal train hijacking and automobile pursuit. This eventually leads to a showdown between the police and mobsters outside the city.
