The pupils of Sunset Valley High School are about to get a big shock. The hottest actor in the business, Daniel Sheldon, is coming to their school for a question and answer session as well as a workshop with other professionals in the business. For Peter Walker and Dane Selford, it's their big chance to get noticed and get well on their way to becoming successful actors in their own right. For Jamie Barnes, it's the chance to get more friends in powerful places. However, not everybody can get what they want and rivalries begin to emerge between former friends. When Daniel leaves back for his home in Hollywood to be with his girlfriend and best friend, he might not be the only person leaving as their attempts to become perfect reach higher and more dangerous levels. Jealousies run rampage and it's not just the High School kids that fall prey to it. Tinseltown isn't the most glamorous place to be when the ugly truth comes out and some people aren't quite as innocent as they claim to be. With several of the kids dreaming big, others are overshadowed with their smaller dreams and a single mother struggles to hold her life together as everything she's ever known collapses around her and she's forced to face the idea that she might be losing her only son. Everybody dreams of having the perfect life but only a select few will go to such measures as to make sure they get it.
