In one hard look at the often-superficial world of movies and the theater, director Stanislaw Rosewicz has created a view of that world seen through the experiences of Eve (Hanna Mikuc), a young actress who prefers Shakespeare over her boyfriend. In reality, Eve has to pay the rent by performing in a red wig as a 1920's flapper in a play called "Dance of the Marionettes" -- a good metaphor for bad acting any day. Eve's essential good nature -- she cares about an impoverished neighbor and the standards in her profession -- is often at odds with the demands at work. When asked to wear an inappropriate hat for a part in a film, Eve balks, and the director dismisses her with the statement that "she is just a woman in a hat." After her big chance at playing Cordelia finally comes, will it be back to the dancing marionettes, or will she finally have a break and actually be Cordelia on stage?
