Set in the exotic and gritty streets of inner-city Kingston, THIRD WORLD COP tells the story of two friends, one trapped in the complex "Dungle" community, and the other who "escaped" and trained as a policeman. Capone (Paul Campbell), a tough crime fighter, is transferred back to his former community where he accidentally meets up with his old friend Ratty (Mark Danvers), who operates as the right hand of the notorious local Don, Oney (Carl Bradshaw).

The film shows the struggle that unfolds, torn between their loyalty to each other and their present lives, and "Rita" (Audrey Reid) Capone's childhood sweetheart who is powerless to intercede as she watches the friend clash over their conflicting ideals in this compelling drama

Who is the winner, Capone or Ratty? Who is right and which choice is easier? It's up to you to be the judge.
