After some cat and mouse maneuvers the girl pulls over at a gas station hoping to take shelter, where the motorist immediately follows suit. When the gas station turns out to be closed the girl is forced to run for her life through the desert while the motorist pursues her with a bag of weapons. After a brief chase the girl desperately catches the attention of a passing truck driver, escaping from the pursuit of her stalker.The Little Things full Movie.
Some time later in Los Angeles, Kern County deputy sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon is called to the L.A. Sheriff’s Department precinct to collect forensic evidence pertaining to a recent murder. Deacon, a former detective now under pressure to retire by his superiors, accompanies recently appointed lead detective Jimmy Baxter to the scene of a new murder in L.A. Deacon notices similarities between the M.O. of the killing with an old serial murder case he was unable to solve during his days as a detective.
That night, a woman, Ronda Rathbun, is followed by a car while jogging and is reported missing the following morning. Baxter learns from the precinct’s captain, Farris, that Deacon got divorced and suffered a heart attack, due to his intense obsession with his unsolved murder case. He’s advised not to involve him any further but Deacon, however, decides to stay in Los Angeles for the week so that he can assist in solving Baxter’s case.
The next night, the police discover the body of another murder victim washed up beneath a bridge. Baxter learns from his partner that the M.O. is consistent with both the earlier murder as well as the string of killings that Deacon was unable to solve: the victims were all prostitutes stabbed to death. Deacon begins investigating Albert Sparma, a potential suspect working at a repair store in proximity to the murders. Deacon attempts to tail Sparma, but when his attempts are thwarted he brings Sparma in for questioning. Sparma in turn taunts the detectives under interrogation, and soon after is released after provoking Deacon into an angry outburst.
