In the 1970s, Jack Devine is intrigued when he discovers that Yves Saint Laurent has paid a record sum at auction for a lacquer screen, "Le Destin." Who is this enigmatic Irish-born Eileen Gray, celebrated designer of 1920s Paris, now all but forgotten? Jack is astounded to discover that she is still alive, though in her nineties, and living a reclusive life in Paris. He determines to seek her out. Eileen's memory is awakened by Jack's probing, and she begins to relive her past, in all its glorious and painful detail—her artistic life, her passion for the modern age, her many affairs, and her heartache at the hands Damia, the infamous singer.
