Milan, dans les années 1970. Devant la lenteur et le laxisme de la loi face au crime, et en colère contre une institution poussiéreuse et corrompue, le commissaire Giorgio Caneparo, flic rebelle et coriace, use de la manière forte pour que justice soit faite, quitte à avoir des problèmes avec sa hiérarchie. Un jour, Caneparo est réprimandé à la suite d'une échauffourée lors d'un transport de prisonniers qui a causé la mort de deux détenus en fuite, tous les deux tués par ce dernier. Seul son supérieur immédiat continue à la défendre mais, peu de temps après, il est abattu en pleine rue par de mystérieux meurtriers. Après s'en être violemment pris à un représentant de la République, venu présenter ses hommages aux policiers milanais et réaffirmer leur devoir de justice et non de vengeance, Caneparo est immédiatement suspendu. Pour le venger, il décide de mener sa propre enquête incognito en s’infiltrant au cœur de la pègre locale qu'il pense être responsable de la mort de son ancien boss. Quand l'heure sera venue, il pourra ainsi faire justice à armes égales avec des tueurs sans limite dirigés par le terrible Padulo.
