Written and directed by Todd Robinson, the actual grandson of the character played by John Travolta, detective 'Buster' Robinson, the film is based on the true-story of the 1940s killer couple Martha Beck and Ray Fernandez, branded by the media the Lonely Hearts killers.

They were awarded that name because of their method of luring older war widows through the classifieds in the Lonely Hearts section as Fernandez (Jared Leto) would advertize being a hot Latin lover and then he and Martha (Salma Hayek) would finish off the victim.

When they were finally caught by the two detectives played by Travolta and Gandolfini, and tried at court, they cooed each other and made love gestures at each other while confessing to a nationwide 12 murders- while speculation places the more accurate count closer to twenty.
