New York City, 1845. Timothy Wilde tends bar near the Exchange, saving every dollar in hopes of winning the girl of his dreams. Then his dreams are incinerated in a downtown fire, leaving Timothy disfigured, unemployed, and homeless, until his older brother obtains him a job in the newly minted NYPD. One night after his rounds in the notoriously down-and-out Sixth Ward, Timothy runs into a little slip of a girl covered head to toe in blood, and into a bittle for justice that nearly costs him everything
