“Napoleon of Crime” James Moriarty escapes the pursuit of Sherlock Holmes in 1912 London but is physically transformed when he travels forward in time to contemporary California. As he wrestles with his new circumstances, he is helped by an invalid girl. Her disapproval makes him reconsider his morally bankrupt life.
The classic tragedy is relocated to a contemporary setting where rival biker gangs struggle for dominance. Avarice for power plays out against a background of heavy metal in the American southwest.
