Among his doubters is the dangerous Crown Prince Leopold who is so determined to expose Eisenheim as a fraud, he sends his betrothed, Duchess Sophie, to the stage as a volunteer. It is an unsettling moment for Eisenheim who recognises her as the girl he loved more than a decade earlier - a relationship which was torn apart by their different social standing. When they rekindle their romance, the Crown Prince sets out to shut the show down and ultimately destroy Eisenheim. However, while the Crown Prince engages him in a dramatic battle of wits, Eisenheim prepares for his most powerful and impressive illusion yet."--Container
