Assisting the police in the investigation is the young German Jewish refugee Misia Safran. With her help they unravel the story of Stella’s life from humble beginnings in a pre-WWI Viennese Jewish ghetto to her rise to stardom in Weimar Berlin and darling of pre-Nazi German cinema.

What she discovers a deeply held secret that might hold the key to the murder, but if made public could destroy Stella’s carefully crafted public persona. Not all that glitters is gold.
