Betty is an actress. Betty is a heroine. Betty is the next victim.
A silent film actress is kidnapped, her leading man is locked up in the next room. Finding themselves at the crux of a murder mystery, they test the lengths they must go to break out of the roles they were built for.
What is part of the show and which part is not?
