Rachel’s Promise is both a family saga and the story of Rachel, a poor and violated young woman. To defend the justice of her cause, which is also a promise to her mama, Rachel must take on the powerful and legendary Raskin family that’s famous for its dynasty of York, the largest motion picture studio in Hollywood. But to take vengeance on the rich and famous, Rachel must either kill them, or rise to their level of power and fight them from their vantage ground. When she realizes she cannot kill, she launches a career in filmmaking under the most adverse circumstances. On her way she comes across people with flawed personalities, a hazard that’s inherent in the nature of the transparent, make-believe world of the filmland. Rachel refuses to become another Hollywood casualty, though she comes very close. Powered by strong will and purpose, she triumphs over the tremendous odds against her. Still, a total satisfaction does not occur from laurels of fame and wealth, but from fulfilling her promise.
