In 1803, jaded detective Augustus Landor (Bale) is called upon to investigate a macabre murder at a military academy in West Point, New York.
Hindered by the academy's wish to prevent the news of the gruesome crime getting out, Augustus appoints a student cadet (Melling) to assist him, a young man who would go on to become Edgar Allan Poe.
A chilling whodunit based on the novel by Louis Bayard, imagining the shaping of the man who would become the ultimate gothic horror writer.
