Based On: 
The writings of Chandler, Cain, and Hammett.
1940s L.A. Private detective Vic Winslow confronts the usual suspects.

1940s film noir satire, as hard-boiled, cynical private detective Vic Winslow wallows within the gritty, sordid, sleazy world of blackmail, murder, corruption, mobsters, pure evil, and a femme fatale.

This short satire contains all the elements contained within the film noir genre of its era, in the voice and style of Raymond Chandler. A dark, gritty tale of hard-hearted, pessimistic fatalism that transcends and transforms the characters toward a resumption of heart and hope.
