The year is 1989, and living in Hollywood is every young persons dream. But surrounding yourself with the company of rising stars can be the difference between a dream and a nightmare.

Note that some events are altered to fit the addition of new characters. PLEASE know that this contains some strong content, due to the realistic portrayal of River's personal life.)
