Eva is back – and this time she means (show) business!
The world’s greatest cabaret star turned double agent is finally following her dream and is Tinseltown-bound. As she basks in the glitz and glamour of the LA lifestyle of pool parties, cocktails and orgies, she unearths a dark truth behind its red velvet curtains. Women are under-valued and over-groped, excess and addiction are the norm, and Eva learns the true price of fame: secrets and lies, murder and betrayal.
Eva is surrounded with heartthrobs and bombshells, presidents and gangsters… but who exactly, is who? The Golden Age of the Silver Screen is plagued with scandal, sex, drugs, desire and deceit. Is Eva to blame? Or is she saving it from self-destruction?
