Is this the stuff of dreams or is this the Hollywood nightmare?

A series of disasters in her home town causes Australian actress Alice Evans to flee to Hollywood where she finds life is not the glittery stuff of dreams. It's the Hollywood nightmare. She is forced to navigate her way round the city in a cheap Japanese rental car lurching from one audition to the next. She has no money in the bank, no friends, and her auditions aren't exactly setting the town on fire. She shares an apartment in the decidedly non-glamorous Miracle Mile district with an out of work swimsuit model and two bellicose cats who have a habit of invading her suitcase when she's not looking.

Alice begins to suspect she's come to the worst place on earth to turn her luck around but she's hell bent on her mission to succeed. One day she has a chance meeting with an Irishman called Nick who encourages her to think carefully about holding onto long-held dreams when life could open up many new possibilities.
