Before Batman came on the scene to sort it all out, his city was full of corruption and criminals, and this is the story of a pre-superhero Gotham.

Rookie detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) must fight the city's criminal gangs and underworlds and the personas who will become Catwoman, the Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face and the Joker.

Gordon's first case is the highest-profile murder case ever – that of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. This is where he meets their hauntingly intense 12-year old son, the sole survivor and now an orphan. Gordon vows to catch the killer to help the little boy.

As he navigates the justice system in a corrupt Gotham, can he keep his promise to Bruce?
