A dark realistic cop series from world-famous filmmaker Olivier Marchal. Braquo follows a squad of Paris cops who exist in the blurred boundaries at the very edge of the law, often using violence and intimidation to get the job done. The lives of these officers change radically when their squad leader, falsely accused of corruption, commits suicide. Determined to clear his name they start an investigation of their own, only to find that the police department itself stands in their way.
Driven by adrenaline and a thirst for justice, they must turn their backs on the laws they’re sworn to enforce if they are to uncover the truth. Facing constant danger from all sides - and with the two most likely outcomes being imprisonment or death – the stakes couldn’t be higher, but that merely serves to crank up the tension in this acclaimed series.
Accused of sexually abusing a prisoner during an interrogation, Major Max Rossi is interviewed by Vogel of the IGS. Placed in custody, he takes the only path that seems open to him.
To avenge the insult to their comrade, who has been buried without honors, Eddy, Theo, Walter and Roxane cross the "yellow line". They abduct Benaissa from custody for questioning, and manage to get the name of his accomplice, but Theo accidentally kills him. Despite having alibis, the four colleagues find themselves under scrutiny by the IGS and the prosecutor.

The homicide squad is dispatched to the offices of the Judicial Police and the General Inspection Service is on a war footing.

Eddy and Theo joined in on a robbery Lemoine.

They barely manage to escape by taking Roxane as hostage. For his part, Bordier was able to identify Walter's kidnapper as a bloodthirsty mercenary named Zoran. All this is happening as Vogel steps up efforts to monitor the team.
Roxane's father died of a heart attack after a threatening visit to Vogel. Meanwhile, Eddy and Theo found Lemoine. At the police station, a compromising video of the robbery could allow identification of Eddy and Theo. Bordier was able to locate the place where Walter Zoran holds. Joined by Eddy, Bordier and his band of former police intervene, thwarting the spinning of the IGS. The means used by Vogel to drop the team are increasingly sadistic.
