A Retro Tale of Star-Crossed Hollywood
Long before such relationships became acceptable in today’s society, a beautiful and talented thirty-six year-old divorcée with two daughters fell in love with an aspiring student actor of twenty-two. Faced with the prospect of being the older woman in a tenuous relationship, she entered a world of the dreams and passions of young Hollywood hopefuls; finding love, disillusionment and resilient self-discovery. Told from the perspectives of two men and two women of principal and supporting characters, the story explores their psyches; their hopes, aspirations, struggles, consequences; and above all, their personal triumphs as they strive for their individual goals in pursuit of their dreams.
Set at a prestigious theatre arts college in Pasadena of 1968 and later in a changing Hollywood of the enchanted and free-spirited 1970’s, the story not only follows the relationship of the principal characters, but the exploits and eclectic camaraderie of supportive intermingled lifestyles around them.
