The film explores the eleven days that celebrated author Agatha Christie went missing in 1926 after quarrelling with her husband who wanted a divorce. Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found until a week and a half later at a hotel in Yorkshire.
Christie never accounted for her disappearance, and she was diagnosed as suffering from psychogenic fugue. Most thought it was a publicity stunt, and evidence since has only cemented that opinion.
Still, it makes for good storytelling potential and has been exploited before such as in a 2008 episode of "Doctor Who". Story details of this film are being kept under wraps, but the tone is said to be described as a female "Sherlock Holmes" meets "Romancing The Stone".
