|Summary, etc.:|| 1931, Calcutta. Anglo-Indian girls like Estelle Thompson are considered half-breeds, shunned by both English and Indian society. Her only escape is through the silver screen, where she can forget the world around her. When Estelle catches the eye of a dashing American heir with connections to a major motion-picture studio, she soon has a one-way ticket to London and a recommendation for a screen test. To get to the top she must keep her Indian heritage concealed, and assumes a new identity as Merle Oberon. As her dreams are poised to come true, she discovers that her own family is keeping a shocking secret that changes everything she's believed about her past.
