For private detective Philip Marlowe (Liam Neeson) business in Los Angeles has been somewhat slow of late. Then a new client arrives: the young and attractive Clare Cavendish (Diane Kruger), daughter of Hollywood actress Dorothy Quincannon (Jessica Lange). She wants Marlowe to trace her former lover, drugs dealer and ladies’ man Nico Peterson. He was allegedly killed in front of the Corbata Club, an exclusive club of the rich and famous of LA, but Clare is convinced that he is still alive, and his death was staged.

During his investigation Marlowe not only falls under the spell of the seductive Clare, but also gets caught up in the shady business that turns out to be happening behind the scenes of the Corbata Club and Hollywood’s film industry. It becomes painfully clear that Bay City’s wealthiest families and most powerful residents are willing to do anything to protect their fortunes.
