Veteran actress Lainey Allen (Crystal Chappell) is tired of being sidelined for younger talent on the soap opera she has starred in for twenty years. Coupled with finding it harder to retain her lines, she decides not to renew her contract, and she and her publicist/partner, Eva Morales (Jessica Leccia), move to a beach house overlooking the ocean on the Central California coast. The move highlights some small changes in Lainey's personality - mild depression that Eva puts down to leaving the show. But when Lainey starts to forget more than can be attributed to stress, Eva insists on a visit to the doctor – which then chronicles Lainey and Eva's changing relationship as they struggle to deal with a new diagnosis. Thoughtfully poignant and deftly written and performed, do not miss this emotionally moving film – with cameo’s galore from some of your favorite daytime serial drama’s.
