Summary
An exploration of Hollywood's role as a purveyor of illusion. The story takes place in 1942 and is about Mignon Dupree, a black woman studio executive who appears to be white, and Ester Jeeter, a black woman who is the singing voice for a white Hollywood star. The film follows the struggles of the women as well as the use of film in wartime Hollywood.
