The life

2004

Television movie
Arnie and Tony are partnered Vancouver police officers. They were raised in the Downtown Eastside, where they now walk the beat. The Downtown Eastside is now the poorest neighbourhood in Canada and is riddled with open drug use. They want to be a small part of the neighbourhood’s redemption. The current mentality on the force regarding the drug war is to “arrest the dealers, chase the addicts and pretend it’s getting better”.
