It is 1947. In the glamorous world of Trudi Stein's dress shop on
Manhattan's Upper East Side, everything is cloaked in silence - until
the arrival of an enigmatic new salesgirl, Esther Bayer, a young
immigrant from Germany, whose very presence fills the joyless
establishment with energy, laughter, and life. What ensues is a
mysterious, obsessive relationship that culminates in revelation.
