Isadora Tast has portrayed more than 60 actors and actresses from all over the world keen to establish themselves as artists in Los Angeles. She offers us insights into a life in Hollywood far removed from the glamour and the world of stars and introduces us to people who, in many different ways, pursue their dream job with more or less success. The portraits and pointed statements open up a world filled with extrovert personalities who fight for their dream every day. Their life stories are mere sketches, yet their motivations, their experiences and assessments are touching and give us an exciting and unfiltered view of everyday life in the world of show business. A lucid essay by renowned film historian Georg Seesslen examines the question of what makes a star a star.
