A surprisingly spot-on depiction of Los Angles circa 1981, with the story of John Holmes and the grizzly mass murder on Wonderland, used as the backdrop for larger issues of societal norms, conventions, fears, and denegration.

Porn star John Holmes had a big drug habit. In a desperate move to fund it, he burgled the home of his dealer. He ratted out his accomplices to save his own neck, which resulted in a grisly quadruple murder on Wonderland Ave. in Laurel Canyon on July 1, 1981. The police investigation discovered all sorts of seedy evidence, but nothing that resulted in a conviction. Someone got away with murder.
