"The Dark Night" is set in a Gotham that finally seems to be pulling itself up by the bootstraps and cleaning up its streets. The local mob bosses are feeling the squeeze as Batman has made their day to day lives increasingly difficult and the new DA, Harvey Dent, is threatening to garnish their millions in assets. Fearing that Dent may indeed rob them of their ill gotten gains, Gotham's mobsters hire a shady Hong Kong businessman to funnel the money out of the country. Batman flies off to Hong Kong to retrieve the mobsters banker only to return to city that is being thrown into chaos by the violent and unpredictable Joker who has made it his mission to throw Gotham into total choas. What follows is an elaborate cat and mouse game between Batman and The Joker that is not only visually awesome but resonates with truth in the way it treats the morality of its individuals.
