Sinopsis

Set during the nineteen twenties, Elvira De Poulain, a Spanish painter based in Paris, receives news that her estranged husband, now running the family textile business in China, has died in his house in Shanghai under strange circumstances and that she must make appropriate funeral arrangements.

Accompanied by her niece, she leaves Marseille by boat to retrieve Rémy’s body and claim her share of his worldly goods, unaware that this journey is the beginning of a compelling quest through China in search of the First Emperor’s treasure. After an eventful voyage, they finally arrive, and Elvira and Fernanda soon find themselves immersed in an underworld of gangsters, opium dens and political intrigues.
