Laila Salama is a mystery. Daughter of an MI6 spy, a Miss Teen Beauty, Rommel's lover, Wiesenthal's informant, she took part in the operation to capture Adolf Eichmann in Argentina.

Through a series of interviews with curious characters, filmmaker Gabriel Lichtmann manages to assemble the puzzle pieces, uncovering a secret which has remained hidden for years.
