This true-crime thriller set against the backdrop of the French Riviera casino wars of the 1970’s, is based on a case that has fed the French tabloid mill for three decades. Agnès Le Roux, a rebellious casino heiress returns from abroad determined to have her share of the family fortune in order to live an independent life. Her biggest obstacle is her widowed mother Renée, the Grande Dame of the last casino standing in the way of a mobbed up plan to give the entire area a Vegas-style makeover. With the mob breathing down her neck, Renée can’t find the liquidity to pay her daughter out. Agnès finds solace in the arms of Renée’s lawyer and confidant Maurice, a cold-blooded playboy with outsized ambition, and a plan to take full advantage of Agnès’ passion, leaving Renée on a 40-year quest for justice.
