Synopsis for "The Hill"

Following an incident on the Hill, a predominantly black area of Gotham, James Gordon is heavily criticised by the press for his inability to maintain law and order there. Batman also finds it difficult to have any effect there, as the people (particularly Korlee, the prime mover and shaker in the Hill's criminal world) do not believe that he exists in any meaningful way. Working separately, they are able to bring Korlee down, but cannot help but feel as though they have failed the Hill.
