Storyline

It is the twilight of a grand old movie star's life. Poor health and old age have robbed her of her glamour, her career and now - probably within hours - her life. The end is near. She arrives, surrounded by her parasitic entourage, at a cinema for a private showing of her greatest screen moments. Kicking the hangers-on out, she sits alone in the dark as the light of the projector illuminates the silver screen and her previous youth and beauty. In a daring escape from the inevitable, she enters the screen and is suddenly back in her movies - a star once more. She tumbles from genre to genre in scenes taking in the silent era, film noir, '70s sci-fi sexploitation and '90s sitcom land. It is a desperate attempt to outsmart and outrun the apparition of death itself, which pursues her through the scenes. Inevitable or not - this old movie diva isn't going without a fight. This is the story of a shooting star who refuses to fade away or go gently into that good night. Written by Anonymous
