Main Plot

Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe Deacon is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence-gathering assignment. Instead, he becomes embroiled in the search for a serial killer who is terrorizing the city.


  • Denzel Washington's character in The Little Things is a seasoned detective investigating a serial killer case.
  • Rami Malek plays a detective who teams up with another detective to track down a serial killer.
  • Jared Leto's character in The Little Things is a suspected serial killer who becomes the focus of investigation.


In the ending of "The Little Things," Joe Deacon confronts Albert Sparma, a potential serial killer, at a remote location. After a tense exchange, Deacon kills Sparma in an act of self-defense. However, Deacon's actions haunt him, leading him to return to his former partner, Jim Baxter, and confess. Despite the lack of concrete evidence, Baxter decides to let Deacon go. As Deacon drives away, he spots a mysterious box in the trunk of a car, possibly hinting at another unsolved crime.
