A Victorian-era British detective blessed with supernatural abilities endeavors to investigate Jack the Ripper's murders.

Late-19th century London, a desirable place to live only for the most privileged and a blighted hellhole for the rest of the population, serves as the backdrop for From Hell, a thriller detailing the work of Inspector Fred Abberline -- a naturally-gifted man aided by his powers of clairvoyance -- as he attempts to put his abilities to the test to investigate Jack the Ripper's brutal killings. Obstacles including the sorry state of London's foremost slum, Whitechapel, and troubles in Fred's personal life look to present a challenge for our man that he must work to muscle through if he is to prevail.
