The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) is in full swing once again - fighting injustice with her pearl-handled pistol and her dagger-sharp wit. Strong-willed, daring and more adventurous than ever, the always glamourous lady-detective has been solving cases around the globe since flying from Melbourne to London with her father in tow. Never forgetting her experiences in the War, her upbringing in the back-alleys of Collingwood or the devastating loss of her sister, Phryne has launched herself into a new slew of murder cases with relentless enthusiasm.
In this special feature-length adventure, Miss Fisher is drawn into an intriguing mystery after freeing a young Bedouin girl, Shirin Abbas, from her unjust imprisonment in Jerusalem. Following the daring escape, Phryne begins to unravel a wartime mystery concerning a priceless jewel, ancient curses and the truth behind the suspicious disappearance of Shirin's forgotten tribe.
Also returning to their roles are Nathan Page as Detective Inspector John "Jack" Robinson, Miriam Margolyes as Prudence, Miss Fisher's irascible aunt, Ashleigh Cummings as Dorothy "Dot" Williams, Miss Fisher's Catholic companion, and this murder mystery welcomes a new face in guest star Rupert Penry-Jones as the dapper Jonathon Lofthouse.
