An FBI agent's investigation of a high-profile Los Angeles murder brings him into contact with impoverished residents of a skid-row hotel.

A filthy Los Angeles skid-row tenement named "The Million Dollar Hotel" houses drug addicts, mentally-ill individuals, and other forgotten elements of society. When a resident named Izzy is murdered, it comes to light that he is the estranged son of a billionaire media tycoon; now, a relentless detective must head to the hotel to investigate the crime, interrogating the building's denizens as he searches for answers.
