Plot summary

The story focuses on two women: the first is an enchanting French actress, Noelle Page, who journeys from the fishing town of Marseilles to fame and glory. Having been sold by her own father, she reconciles herself to a life that bears no similarity to the picture perfect one she dreamt of when she was young, and sets her sights on achieving her goal of becoming a successful filmstar. She succeeds on making it to the top by pleasuring various men. On the other side of the globe, Catherine Alexander, a naive and beautiful young woman, struggles in Chicago for recognition and success. American war aviator Larry Douglas is a typical playboy who trots around the globe sweeping women off their feet. Constantin Demiris is a Greek tycoon who owns half the world. Cunning and influential, he does not forgive and forget. Demeris controls the lives of the other three characters in a most unexpected manner, twisting the plot to a stunning finish.
