Crime…Passion…Stamp Collecting? The stakes are high when two half-sisters, mourning the recent passing of their mother, inherit a book of rare stamps that may include the "crown jewel" of the stamp-collecting world. The battle for possession takes a dangerous turn when three rival collectors enter the sisters' world, and they are plunged into a seedy, cloak-and-dagger underworld. Mauritius by Pulitzer Prize nominee and creator of the hit TV series Smash, Theresa Rebeck, is a suspenseful comedy-drama where everyone involved seems willing to bully, connive, cheat, and, if all else fails, conduct a legitimate business transaction, to gain control of the rarest of prizes. Adult language. Directed by Steve Taft.
