Summary
HOLLYWOOD 1937 - Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the world's most prestigious and powerful movie studio, tricks 120 underage chorus girls into attending a stag party for its visiting salesmen. When dancer Patricia Douglas tries to flee, she is brutally raped; defying the studio's order for silence, Douglas files a landmark lawsuit while MGM launches the biggest cover-up in Hollywood history - until six decades later, when author-screenwriter David Stenn stumbles upon the story. Stenn's decade-long search for the truth leads to Patricia Douglas herself, nearly ninety and still in hiding. Will she go public once again, or will Hollywood's best suppressed scandal die with her?
