Hollywood 1949. In an era of stifling movie production restraints and stars kept under oppressive control by their bosses, innocent and naive young actor Patrick Glass, newly arrived in Hollywood, feels the full force of the studios’ brute career-destroying power when he embarks on a scandalous love affair with his famous male co-star – the brooding and enigmatic heartthrob Jackson Harper…
As the Hollywood powers-that-be and the prevailing social morality clamp down on this unacceptable romance and decide to tear it apart, the ramifications will still be felt forty years later in 1989 when German mail order bride Ava meets her father-in-law Pat, a bitter and reclusive former actor – and gradually uncovers the secrets and truth of his past…
A powerful drama about the money, image and power obsessed ‘Hollywood machine’.
Warning: Contains strong language and scenes of full frontal male nudity.
