Is there a formula to cure lovesickness? When Prince Albert's beloved Leocadia dies his aunt, the Duchess, believes she has the answer to soothe grief. With her extravagant wealth, the Duchess creates an artificial world where the objects and the people which surround his lost romance are reconstructed, allowing Albert to endlessly relive his three-day relationship with Leocadia. But the artificial world is skin-deep and provides no real consolation for Albert who falls further into melancholia. In a last-ditch attempt to save Albert from his emotional paralysis, the Duchess tricks a young woman into 'playing the part' of the dead Leocadia, hoping to draw Albert out of his reverie. Amanda bears a striking resemblance to Leocadia, but it soon becomes clear that her real personality will take over that of the fabulous and decadent singer she's aiming to portray. Will Leocadia's ghost continue to haunt the young couple or can Amanda defeat her?
