Next. The girls after the Hollywood's dream

A hotel room in California, a dance classroom or a piano lesson in a quiet house, all of the above are convenient spaces for girls and teenagers to take on an arduous preparation for a long-awaited casting.

The goal is as simple as it is chimerical: to be a Hollywood star. We see them through the curious and imperfect shots of director Elia Urkiza, who serves as a sensitive voyeur of the puerile faces of those who dream of being a movie actress.

In addition to capturing the humanity of the little aspirants, their efforts and the sacrifices of their progenitors to achieve such goal, the film unveils the talent-building economy that feeds on California's entertainment industry.
