Summary
Set within the vibrant dancehalls and historic crime corridors of 1940s Paris, a singer with "stars in her eyes" ignores the protest of her covetous husband and pursues a meeting with a lecherous movie financier. When her husband attempts to crash the rendevous, murder ensues. Enter the detective, whose seasoned instincts lead him down a circuitous path of alibis.
