What could be safer than living next to a cop?
That bald guy is really scary!
A young inter-racial couple move into an mixed, up-market neighbourhood. The guy next door is a cop, widowed, with two kids. He takes a dislike to the newcomers, and after he and his kids see them skinnydipping in the pool, decides they have to leave the area. So he begins a campaign to force them out. Unable to turn to the police for help, the couple eventually decide to fight fire with fire, which quickly escalates out of control, just like the approaching forest fire. Reviews have been mixed.
