New Year's Eve, 1951. Hollywood, California. As Tinseltown rings in the twilight of its Golden Age, a gorgeous young man arrives from Texas, hell-bent on exploiting his brooding good-looks and smoldering sex appeal in exchange for his rightful place among the stars of the silver screen--only to become dangerously entangled in the lives of one of the most powerful couples in show business.
