It's 1969 and small-town girl is at Melbourne's dodgiest nightclub ...

What secrets hide beneath the bright lights and disco balls?

It’s 1969 and small-town girl Faith Taylor longs for the excitement of the city. Leaving her family home in Willow Tree Bend, Faith lands a job at The Angel, Melbourne’s most infamous nightclub.

While Faith relishes her new-found freedom, she can’t help but notice that there are some things about the club that don’t add up. So when a policeman shows her a shocking photograph and reveals that a former waitress was murdered, Faith realises she must help to bring down the shadowy owner behind the club’s activities.

More than 30 years later, what happened at The Angel remains a closely held secret, never spoken about. When Faith disappears, her sister Hope – now a famous movie star – is left with an intriguing, though a frustrating piece of the puzzle.

But with a tell-all documentary film crew constantly by her side, how can she find where Faith is – and what she’s hiding – while making sure her own secrets stay hidden?
