Yella has decided to leave her small town for a promising job and new life, leaving behind her failed marriage and broken dreams. Nothing can stop her: not even a freak car accident with her psychotic ex-husband driving on the day of her departure. After a humiliating professional setback, the winds change for pretty Yella when young executive Philipp takes a chance on her as his assistant. Although she has no experience in high-risk venture capital, coincidence lends a hand and Yella soon discovers she has a knack with ruthless businessmen. Negotiations become a thrilling game of quick wits in which Yella’s looks and icy demeanor are major assets. Yella sees a potential future with Philipp. He is serious, determined, and his goals could become shared projects. It seems ambitious Yella could finally get everything she ever wanted… But strange sounds and events plague Yella. Truths from her past come back to haunt her. Her new life could be too good to be real.
