Set in 2001, a group of misfits live in a flea-bitten, skid-row hotel known as 'The Million Dollar Hotel'. Its residents become the center of attention when a junky named Izzy is found murdered. As it turns out, he is the son of a wealthy and powerful media magnate. The residents of the hotel soon become the prime suspects. A badgering detective is then on the case to try and solve the murder. Or was it a suicide?
