"Hollywood Dreams" follows the journey of a young woman from a small town in Iowa, Margie Chizek (Tanna Frederick), who arrives in Los Angeles deeply scarred by certain events in her childhood and profoundly obsessed with a life-long dream of achieving fame and stardom. After a series of difficult and sometimes comic struggles – including a failed audition for the "part of a lifetime" in a local play – she literally bumps into a self-styled "major producer / manager" (Zack Norman) who, together with his personal and professional partner (David Proval), takes her under his wing. As Margie's fate seems to have suddenly changed and her goal appears finally within reach, her romantic involvement with an exciting, complex up-and-coming young actor (Justin Kirk) challenges her – and our – ideas of success, fame and love.
