Story begins in San Francisco Bay in the late 1960s. A couple driving their cars to a more secluded place. The boy is young and inexperienced, the girl is energetic and audacious. After a while one car came near them and kill them. So Zodiac show himself to us. Later in the film we learn that this murder is the second murder of the Zodiac.
Graysmith (who worked as a political cartoonist) begins to work in San Francisco. The murders continue but the police cannot reach any clues. Victims are randomly selected and killed at random locations. After a while, letters begin to appear in the newspapers with the Zodiac sign.
The killer sends some cryptographic information in the letters and wants them to be published in the newspaper. Of course journalists contact with police but they also publish them. Graysmith and Avery start the work one the case but after a while everybody stops.
As the years progress, the murders diminish, but from time to time, they happen again and letters come. Over the past 10 years, the killer is a bit forgotten, but Graysmith begins to work on it.

Is Zodiac Smart Killer?
It is a question that you can hear in the movie. The part we can say without giving too much spoilers is not stupid. But the rest of comment up to you.
Zodiac sent lots of letter and dare to police. After every murder he call the 911 and give the information of deaths. He thinks he is smarter then police. The dark nights between meticulously concealed clues make the film viewable.
What is interesting also the story is real based on a book. And one of the characters wrote this book. That’s make story more attractive.
