Based on James Ellroy's novel about a real-life Los Angeles murder case when Elizabeth Short (Mia Kirshner) was brutally murdered and grotesquely mutilated, this film is fiction but uses details from the still unsolved 1947 case. Ex-boxers, now LAPD detectives Bucky Bleichert (Josh Hartnett) and Lee Blanchard (Aaron Eckhart) investigate the murder in their unique ways. Bucky dumps girlfriend Kay Lake (Scarlett Johansson) when he comes under the spell of the beautiful bisexual, Madeleine (Hilary Swank), who, it turns out, once slept with Elizabeth. Then there are the drugs and police corruption that enter the picture in this difficult case.
