Bruce Wayne– handsome, rich, and Gotham City’s favorite playboy.
Batman– dark, brooding, and Gotham City’s guardian angel.

It’s hard to say which is the ego and which is the alterego, and when Bruce Wayne is accused of murdering Vesper Fairchild, up and coming investigative journalist and a former girlfriend of Bruce Wayne, Batman takes advantage of the situation to slip off the burden of being Bruce Wayne. Those who are closest to Bruce are left frustrated and angry at his apparent lack of desire to clear his name. Added to which is the nagging question of whether Bruce/Batman might have killed Vesper Fairchild. He had the opportunity and the ability, and maybe even a motive.
