A Hollywood cop compromised in the past as a fixer for the big studios is drawn into the twilight world of period La-La Land when a producer for The Wizard of Oz is found dead, and the case has to be hushed up. The investigation soon becomes very personal. A wonderful evocation of the dark side of a Golden Age.
