Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and "Rust" Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) are two detectives and former partners who worked in Louisiana's Criminal Investigation Division in the mid-1990s. Hart, an outgoing native Louisianan and family man whose marriage is being frayed by work stress and infidelity, is (at least on the surface) the polar opposite of Cohle, a lone-wolf pessimist and former narcotics detective from Texas. In 2012, for reasons not immediately revealed, the two are interviewed separately by investigators about their most notorious case: the macabre 1995 murder of a prostitute by a possible serial killer with disturbing occult leanings.
