Rate this:
In 1927, a fourteen-year-old boy hops a boxcar in a dusty Texas field headed for Hollywood and life in the "flickers." His aim is to get as far away from the farm he thinks holds nothing for him.

In 1947, a ten-year-old girl dreams of a real home, with a real family, far away from the crowded Los Angeles streets where her handsome father chases an impossible dream - and where her mother holds a dark secret.

.In 1980, a young man comes home from the navy, not to the mother he ran away from, but to his colorful, elderly grandparents in Los Angeles - the ones who might or might not have been a movie actor and a band singer.
