Agatha Christie is the world’s most translated writer with a circulation of more than one billion copies. Her heroes Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple are known worldwide and her play “The Mousetrap” keeps breaking its own records year after year. But who is the woman behind the records? This film embarks on a biographical search for clues, of an iridescent personality whose biography and works were shaped by world events of the 20th century. Agatha Christie was not only a disciplined worker, she was also a woman who didn’t care about conventions, loved music, dancing and international travel, and liked to roller skate on the pier in Torquay. With the help of films and photos from the private archive of Agatha Christie, Janet Morgen, Agatha Christie’s only authorised biographer and Agatha Christie expert Dr. John Curran tell of the most important stations in Agatha Christie’s eventful life.
