In 1896 New York City, young boy prostitutes dress up as little girls in order to please their male clients. When a number of these young boys are turning up dead at the hands of a sadistic serial killer, police commissioner Teddy Roosevelt (Brian Geraghty) assigns Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl), a brilliant criminal psychologist, to work on the investigation. 

Kreizler is assisted by his old friend, New York Times illustrator John Moore (Luke Evans), and strong-willed police secretary Sara Howard (Dakota Fanning), the first woman ever employed by the NYPD.
