The Plot

Justified: City Primeval is a miniseries based on the 2010 drama series, Justified. Coming from the writer, Elmore Leanord and his books, City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit and Fire in Hole, this is a Western American crime drama.

Talking in-depth about its plot, Raylan Givens, the deputy US Marshal has left Kentucky for good and settled down in Miami with his 15-year-old daughter. He has left behind his previous life and plans to make a new one. With that pursuit in mind, he travels all the way to Detroit. There, he encounters Clement Mansell, The Oklahoma Wildman who is a violent, sociopathic desperado. In other words, he is a full-blown criminal in an attempt to run far away from Detroit as possible.

Now, along with Clement, comes his attorney, Carolyn Wilder. She is stuck between her duty to defend her client with criminal intent or work with the cops to put him behind bars.

At last, these three main characters set out on a “collision course” to see who makes it out of the City Primeval alive.
