Jenna Paulsen’s selfish siblings manage to incarcerate this young non-profit fundraiser in a mental institution so they can steal a small inheritance. She legally affects her release and turns her back on the past to reinvent herself as Sanapia Jones, different hair and makeup and clothing, so that her own family doesn’t even recognize her. She luckily falls into the company of actress Berry Harmon, who introduces Sanapia to a whole new world of acting and singing--an actual overnight success—and to the handsome and intelligent Hollywood hunk Marc Brand who falls hard for this brand new lovely young woman. Their love story is intense and passionate but not without its challenges from within and from without. And even though they live together, sleep and even bathe together, Marc will not make love with his Sana until he knows it is right, and she has healed from the past and grown fully into her new skin. And then a stunning night at the Academy Awards affords them both the opportunity for a special next step.
