When a famous female movie star dies, the secret is revealed the woman was really a man. Dinah East (Jeremy Stockwell) had kept the secret from his agent, attorney and his own son. Alan Sloan (Andy Davis) is the family lawyer who would often escort Dinah, and Tony Locke (Ray Foster) was her homosexual friend who dated her to hide his same sex preference to the world. Reid Smith is the surviving son who must deal with the publicity and headlines. The story opens with the news of Dinah's death before flashbacks are used to illustrate past events. A brief nude scene and the subject matter are the only things that would put this film in the exploitation category. Ultra Violet appears briefly as a lesbian fashion designer.
