Two Women... In a tiny German village, young Ellie nurtures glittering fantasies of the opera stage. Her ambition sets her on a path of deception, greed and regret. In London, teenage runaway Angie transforms herself into Penny Bright, darling of the pop scene. But a violent attack leaves her crippled by fear and drug addiction. Twenty years... One will steal the other's life and lose her greatest love. One will try to run from her past but will ultimately have to confront her darkest memories. But both of their lives are linked through the ambitious schemes of a record producer. One guilty secret... From the London glam-rock scene to the opera stages of Europe, from a remote Greek island to the sun-drenched coast and silent outback of Australia, this duet's final notes will not be sung until the heart-stopping climax, when a shadow from the past returns to claim them both.
