Synopsis: Justice is elusive to Pete Davis, a Chicago District Attorney attempting to prosecute an Archbishop for the abuse of a little girl. When the victim commits suicide, Pete is granted two days to find additional evidence to make his case.
With the aid of his partner, a detective immersed in the corruption of big-city politics, Pete hesitantly accepts the help of an old lover, the madame of Chicago's highest-end brothel. The three construct a web to thwart their powerful adversary, unaware of the true monster they will ultimately unleash.
Stiletto is a story of vengeance, love, and decay and breathes new life into a classic genre by blending contemporary themes with the visual style, narrative conventions and character archetypes of film noir. The film’s achievements in lighting and cinematography are matched by riveting direction and performances by the actors in a suspenseful story that keeps the audience guessing until the final scene.
