Vera Stark, an African American maid and aspiring actress in 1930s Hollywood, sets out to land a role in a southern epic alongside her white starlet employer. Several years and several films later, Stark disappears, leaving scholars to debate her legacy, mine old interview footage for clues and examine her tangled relationships behind-the-scenes of the film that made her famous. Discover Stark’s story in this comedy that takes an irreverent look at race in Hollywood.
