Synopsis:Dark Shields tells the story of a Chicago Task Force and their quest to catch bad guys, but while they attempt to do that they also plan to line their own pockets. The group has made it their priority to track down drug dealers, kill them, and then rob them of whatever cash they have. Unfortunately the group has attracted both the attention of Internal Affairs as well as the local crime lords. When two thugs gun down some local mobsters, there is a bag loaded with five million dollars floating around in the underworld of Chicago and team leader Desmond Reeds (Larry Greene) is tasked with keeping the streets peaceful. As Desmond and his team get closer and closer to the criminal element, they find it more and more difficult to distinguish from their profession and the sordid underbelly that they are sworn to crack down upon.
