Film details


Thriller. Wilson is an ex-convict who has just served nine years in prison. Upon his release, he leaves London for Los Angeles intent on solving the mystery of his daughter's death. His first clues come from a letter he has received about his daughter from a former criminal, Ed. Eventually Ed becomes Wilson's partner in trying to solve the 'crime', if there is one. Just about the only other clue Wilson has is the fact that his daughter was romantically involved with a middle-aged, wealthy record producer, Valentin(e), who is now involved with another equally young girl, Adhara.
