In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, played by Ria Jones lives in a fantasy world. Whilst impoverished screen writer, Joe Gillis, played by Strictly Come Dancing’s Danny Mac, who is on the run from debt collectors stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on Norma’s ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious life-style.  Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.
