The time is 1941 and Rose Rogers, Tinsel Town's brightest star, is hiding a secret! But, when a young girl comes knocking late one evening, all will be revealed. Flashbacks to the age of flappers and speakeasies will bring to light a deal that goes beyond the grave. In a world where no one's as they seem, who can be trusted in Hollywood's golden age?
