Glasgow, 1984. A city alive with life in all its many forms. Unfortunately, not all those lives are easy. The police are under pressure from all angles, the force is modernising and growing to try and meet the challenges of 'The Mean City'. However, before they sort out the crime on the streets, they might need to look closer to home. The modern police force isnt welcomed by everybody and one DCI is determined to undo the latest and greatest tragedy: female detectives. The odds may be in his favour, but his biggest mistake? Underestimating these brilliant women.
