Set in the mean streets of New York, this smart, gritty two-hour movie event’s story plot goes something like this: Larenz Tate stars as Bird and Trane, identical twins on separate sides of the law. Trane is an undercover agent with a secret task force. Bird is a recently freed convict who plays by a different set of rules. However, when Trane is murdered, Bird assumes his brother’s identity seeking his brother’s murderer and a second chance at life. Grappling with morality, fatherhood and love, Gun Hill asks this question: Can someone who is unredeemable become redeemed?
