DIRECTOR: Casper Andreas

Boy moves to L.A. to pursue acting career, boy makes difficult choices to pay the rent, then boy falls in love and his past catches up with him—it’s a tale as old as time.

Adam wants to launch his TV and movie career, so he crashes with his best friend, Candy, a catty blonde who’s expecting her big break any day now—and has been for years. Between snippy talent agencies, endless parking tickets, and a dead-end receptionist job, Adam seems further than ever from his dream. Nick, a photographer with less-than-honorable intentions and a drug habit, hooks him up with an office job at a porn production company. Despite several offers, including from his endearingly creepy boss, Adam repeatedly refuses to go in front of the camera…at least until his bills catch up with him and he falls for Nick’s dubious charm. Circumstances snowball until he’s being pimped out by his boss as a high-class escort to famous men who need discretion with their booty calls. But when Adam falls in love with one of his clients, a closeted TV star, his dreams of serious acting—and true love—hang in the balance.

In this spirited, sexy dramedy, director Casper Andreas (A Four Letter Word, The Big Gay Musical) shows us the ups and downs of chasing the Hollywood dream. And with the help of the adorable Matthew Ludinski as Adam, who is all charm and washboard abs, it’s a not-to-be-missed L.A. story made for the silver screen.
