Inherent Vice


Inherent Vice
A rather complex and convoluted plotline. A doctor who sidelines as a private eye gets a suprise visit from his ex. She has a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin. Things get more involved as new characters are introduced who all have connections to each other and to the case, leaving the doctor to try and figure out exactly what is going on.
