Plot Summary:

"The Seven Five" tells the jaw-dropping story behind NYPD officer Michael Dowd’s descent into the wild 1980’s East New York drug trade, overrun with crack, murder and money. From stuffing his pockets with crime scene cash to chasing down drug ring competitors, present-day Dowd is unapologetic yet charming in rattling off a list of his misdeeds. Dramatic surveillance footage captures Dowd in the act and interviews with his former partner, his drug kingpin employer, Internal Affairs and more paint a riveting portrait of a likable criminal in the vein of Goodfellas’ Henry Hill.
