Broken Badge

Based on the New York Times article, “A Rookie’s Online Journal Citing Gun Restraint Gave No Clue†by Michael Wilson, Broken Badge chronicles the events leading to the tragic suicide of a hero NYPD officer. By juxtaposing the seminal events in this young officer’s life, the film attempts to draw a portrait of a man slowly coming undone. Caught between duty and obsession, restraint and indulgence, Broken Badge highlights the thin line between control and madness. Executive produced by film legend, Michael Hausman (Amadeus, Gangs of New York, Brokeback Mountain), Broken Badge is a tribute to his indomitable filmmaking spirit.
