(mbc.net) Adele August is a Wisconsin, mother who longs for a more exciting and glamorous life in Beverly Hills. So she leaves her husband and packs her reluctant daughter Ann into a gold Mercedes, heading for L.A.

When they arrive and move into an apartment they can't really afford, it becomes clear that Ann is the mature half of the duo, while Adele, a dreamer, is not firmly grounded in reality.

Her plans include Ann's future career as an actress and landing a rich and handsome husband for herself.

A family tragedy provokes a crisis between mother and daughter and the irresponsible Adele is forced to grow up.
