Fame. Love. Respect. Lilly DuPont wanted it all, and at the sweet age of 25, Lilly achieved her goals. She's newly engaged with a hot record climbing the charts, Lilly should be over the moon. Unfortunately, her past continues to haunt her and a new secret threatens to end several friendships. Lilly wants so much to release her burdens but remains fearfully reluctant to walk away from the past and step into the truth. Lilly's dream of being a superstar has always led her footsteps. From the weekends spent at dance, singing, drama and piano lessons, Lilly was determined to accomplish her dreams. She left home -to the dismay of her mothers -- at the young age of 18; with a singular focus to take-over Los Angeles and become a star. Lilly soon learned that the glittering flowers of fame were spiked with golden thorns, and she'd do anything to survive. Throughout her young adulthood, she struggled with her emotional naivety as she 'jumped' from body to body, constantly trying to become the main priority in her lover's lives. Lilly also learns that in a world of prettier faces and frenemies', she must decide whether her fight for the spotlight is worth the carnage she leaves behind; and finally Lilly's small-town values are also put to the test, as she finds herself in predicaments that blur the line of 'right and wrong.' If dealing with the past wasn't enough, Lilly has on-going issues that haven't been resolved. The burden of her mother's constant disapproval of Lilly's career choice, the pressure of financially contributing to her brother's tuition, an ex-;lover attempting to join her future, writing another hit, and wedding planning. Ordinarily, Lilly would turn to her best friend for guidance, but an even bigger secret threatens to unravel the 15+ year friendship. With the demands of her past encroaching on her future and the year-long secret she's kept, Lilly is frozen in action. Will Lilly refuse to acknowledge her emotional pain and the unintentional hurt she has caused others? Can Lilly release her past to create a new future? How will Lilly's decisions derail her quest for fame, love, and respect?
