A magical thriller directed by Juha Wuolijoki, produced by Steve Richards and executive produced by Joel Silver.
Paris 1861. Detective Paul Picard is hot on the trail of Ric Lazare, the brilliantly charismatic gypsy conjurer, who has won over Parisian elites with his miraculous fortune-telling machine. After receiving a fortune predicting his own death, Picard sets off on a trip across Europe to investigate Lazare's past in order to expose him as a fraud before he gains control over the Emperor and the destiny of France.
Soon Picard finds himself hurled headlong into a web of gypsy magic, murder, seduction and mystery that leads him through Germany to Austria, the Hungarian steppes, and back to Paris, to confront his fate before the fortune-telling machine.
As Picard uncovers Lazare's past and a trail of mysterious clues, he soon realizes that there may be more to this conjurer than meets the eye. Lazare is not only behind a series of brutal decapitations of young women, he may also hold the key to eternal life itself.
