In 1971 the Knapp Commission, entrusted to expose corruption in the New York Police Department, faces a major problem. They have little physical evidence - their main source, Frank Serpico, won't wear a wire. They finally strike gold when a corrupt cop named William Phillips agrees to become their undercover agent, in exchange for immunity from a bribery charge.
