Five years later, she’s switched professions to be behind the camera, and Evan is now the one turning her life inside out when they end up working on the same movie. Not recognizing Samantha, he’s pursuing her; she’s convinced it could never work. Or could it? Through steamy kisses at auditions, filming in remote locations, red carpet disasters, and Hollywood parties with lecherous casting agents, Samantha, Evan, and their “supporting cast” discover that sometimes all you need is a second chance.
