Barry Van Dyke plays Hollywood former-star Edward Forester, an actor whose down on his luck. His career and personal life have hit rock bottom-but not his spirit. At 64, the handsome bachelor moves in to a tiny apartment and must start over again. He quickly learns who his ‘real’ friends are and meets Catarina, a neighbor who can barely make her own life work. It is through her encouragement, and “in-your-face” friendship, that Edward realizes the only way back to the top is to believe in himself get to work for one more shot at success. This film was made to give people hope – especially those that see no way out of their unfortunate circumstances. Filmmaker Stanley states “my goal is the film will ignite a passion in our viewers (both young and old) to live their lives to the fullest and never give up on their dream.”
