Someone is killing beautiful, young hipsters in East L.A. But while the bloody trail is cold for the apathetic detectives "investigating" the murders, Charlie, a crime scene cleaner with a penchant for Sherlock-ian deduction, working for the private crime scene-cleaning company, Aftershocks Inc., begins finding some unusual clues in the demo CDs of indie bands left behind at the murder sites. It's a cinematic goldmine for Wallace and Roger, the out-of-luck filmmakers working as freelance crime scene videographers for the police homicide department. They hatch what is a possibly brilliant, but probably really dumb, idea to begin filming Charlie as he cracks the case and actually begins solving the murders for what they think will be their career-breaking masterpiece - and maybe the most bizarre film-noir documentary ever made. The problem is, nobody is really sure that Charlie isn't the serial killer. Meanwhile, the dead hipsters are piling up like pancakes, there's a rival Danish film crew, and on top of everything else, it looks like the killer is now making an experimental film of his own...which is so not cool.
