    'We taught the world new ways to dream.' But what does it take to change the world? Welcome to the movie capital of the world in 1930s depression era America, when film was at its greatest heights, when beauty ruled and people starved. Hollywood studio heads and stars created a beautiful illusion, but two girls will discover the rotten truth as they search for their missing sister.
