Wilson, a limey, which is slang for a British sailor, has just finished his second stretch in prison, this time for nine years. He’s on his way to Los Angeles because he got a note and some clippings about his beautiful dead daughter Jenny (Melissa) from someone named Ed. It seems her death – a fiery auto accident in Hollywood Hills – wasn’t really an accident. She was involved with the sleazy subculture of L.A., including record producer Terry Valentine. With the help of people who knew Jenny, like the actress Elaine, Wilson tracks his prey and begins dismembering Valentine’s cadre.
