Alcala preyed on young attractive women and lured them by telling them he was a professional photographer and wanted to enter their photos in a contest.
While the exact victim count remains unknown, Alcala is suspected to have killed as many as 130 women and children before he was finally captured in 1980.

The only thing I can compare this movie to, is one of those TV shows from the 90's, with slightly better actors I must admit.
You probably know one, there's this boy who's not sure about commitment and this girl who wants to start a family, throw a couple of inside jokes and stay on a conventional path.
The actors manage to do a average job with what they've got (which is nothing almost) and you get one or two jokes that actually are funny, but it's not enough.
