In a tropical country where shadowy political affairs lurk behind the scenes of its glamorous film industry, three people manoeuvre inside a high stakes game of statecraft and espionage:
Lillian, a reluctant diplomat serving a fascist nation, Aristide, an expatriate film director running from lost love and a criminal past, and Cordelia, a former cabaret stripper turned legendary revolutionary.
Each one harbours dangerous knowledge that can upturn a nation. When their fates collide, machinations are put into play, unexpected alliances are built, and long-held secrets are exposed. Everything is barrelling towards an international revolt... and only the wiliest ones will be prepared for what comes next.
