True love doesn't always follow a script.... Tracy Vance's love life is a total flop. Sure, she has a cool job as a tour guide at a real Hollywood movie studio, but when it comes to her personal life, she can barely get her crush, Connor, to notice her. Then Tracy gets a brilliant idea: Why not win Connor's heart with some help from the big screen?
