In Victorian-era London, a troubled clairvoyant police detective investigates the murders of Jack the Ripper.
In his book "Jack the Ripper the Secret of Mary Jane K", published in France in 2006, paranormal investigator Philippe R. Welte brings evidences that the ripper was a French doctor, in love with Mary Kelly. In this book, a twenty year investigation, every murder is clearly motivated.
Sir Charles Warren:
It's over with, It's done. You have my word.
Abberline: Fuck your word! I will bring down every one of you fucking cunts!
The film depicts the Ripper in his carriage en route to pick up his next victim (as depicted in the next shot) racing along the Thames with Big Ben and the Tower in the background. This would mean that he was on the wrong bank of the Thames, racing away from the Whitechapel district, which was located within easy walking distance of the Tower.
Thanks to the Megerdichian family
Two endings were filmed: one where Abberline dies of a drug overdose and one where he sneaks off to be with Mary.
