Storyline

Past her prime and slowly fading into obscurity, the beloved and once-popular actress, Nina Horn, summons up the courage to make a comeback. Supported by a young journalist, and an old flame who happens to be a successful stage director, Nina will soon come face to face with her muted fears, and the gut-wrenching certainty that--in this alluring world of fame and glamour--she has always been alone. In the end, how tortuous and painful is the bitter road to freedom? Written by Nick Riganas
