When one is finally offered to her, she realizes with alarm that the libretto is based on a hidden piece of her past.

In order to survive, she transformed herself from hippodrome rider to courtesan, from empress"s maid to debut singer, all the while weaving a complicated web of romance, obligation, and political intrigue.
