Director Roman Polanski's classic neo-noir detective story is set during a heat wave in 1930s Los Angeles, where residents suffer from a water shortage due to an ongoing drought.

Jake uncovers a plot against the man, a sex scandal implicating his real wife (Dunaway), and a real estate swindle of tremendous proportions devised by her tycoon father (Huston), backed up by a vast network of corrupt city officials and landowners.
