But when a rival performers act goes tragically wrong, the newly formed FBI calls on Wren to speak the truthand reveal her real name to the world. She transfers her skills for misdirection from the stage to the back halls of vaudeville, as she finds herself the unlikely partner in the FBIs investigation. All the while Houdinis words echo in her mind: Whatever occurs, the crowd must believe its what you meant to happen.
