Two lifetimes. Two rising stars. One common danger.

As a daughter starts her rise in the glamorous London fashion scene, she begins to uncover secrets and clues about the mother she never knew -- a beautiful teenage model who became a victim in the high stakes, high pressure world where international fashionistas and mobsters intersect.

The fast cars, flashy parties, and easy money can be so enticing. But in a world where everybody is taken at face value, there is always a high price to pay for such fleeting fame.
