A murderer stalks the night in the Whitechapel area of London, picking off vulnerable women and leaving them brutally butchered. The locals live in fear and the police remain clueless with seemingly no motive, evidence or hope of catching this barbaric killer. But this is not the 19th century in the time of Jack the Ripper — this is now.
The case is assigned to Detective Inspector Chandler (Rupert Penry-Jones), a novice in murder cases and an expert in the politics of policing. Unfortunately, his fellow officers are anything but. Among these officers is Detective Sergeant Miles (Phil Davis), the archetypal cynical, seen-it-all detective. After receiving a tip, DI Chandler realizes that this modern-day killer is copying the infamous Whitechapel murders down to the very last detail. Can Chandler and his fellow officers solve what was failed to do over 100 years before?
