At the tender age of nineteen, Christine Rayier is an unparalleled prima donna at the apex of stardom and fashion. Her pearly voice enchants the audiences from beyond the adoring footlights and her store-displayed daguerreotype wins even the affection of the poor. She is betrothed to Charles de Charnage, a young handsome aristocrat whose fortune is only surpassed in magnitude by his love.
Love, wealth, fame and glory come easily for Christine but peace does not.
