London, 1926. The writer Agatha Christie has just published "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" and earned an international fame. She's married to the Colonel Archibald Christie who wants her to accept a divorce so that he can marry Nancy Neele. But Agatha, terribly shocked by this situation, will disappear during one whole week. While the police forces are looking for her, she will spend a week using a false name in a thermal spa resort. Dustin Hoffman, an american journalist, will find her and try to understand what Agatha is plotting.

Well-thought picture about this still unsolved mystery.
