The Strategic Response Unit (SRU) is an elite team of cops specialised in high-risk incidents. Trained in tactics and psychology, they have to make split-second decisions that can save a life - or end one.
Gotta rescue hostages, defuse bombs, outfox psychopaths and, with only seconds to go, convince suicidal teens and terrorist commandos alike to give up? It’s a job for the Strategic Response Unit (SRU), the ultimate team of elite cops. High risk is their business, life-and-death stakes their world. They use state-of-the-art equipment, but beyond all the cool gadgetry, their most important weapons are human intuition, a gift for words and their ability to read emotion.
FLASHPOINT takes viewers into the minds of people who have reached their boiling point. Each of its five seasons delves into a variety of thematic backdrops, from the human cost of heroism to the true meaning of a team, and from the powerful bonds of family to the many faces of sacrifice. In the final season, the SRU faces its toughest challenge yet, when its faith in justice itself is shaken by events beyond its control.
