However, Valery's life takes a dramatic turn when an old friend and fashion model, Candy, commits suicide by jumping off a building after leaving a mysterious message on Valery's answering machine. Convinced that Candy's death was not a suicide, but a murder, Valery decides to investigate the death, and soon finds herself embroiled in a dangerous web of secrets and lies.

As Valery starts to dig deeper into the mystery surrounding Candy's death, she uncovers a plot to manipulate the outcome of a beauty contest, in which some of the most powerful and affluent people in the city are involved.
