Life History Of A Star glimpses into the warped realities of Angie and Dave, an enthusiastic couple traveling to Hollywood with dreams of success.

Angie takes us on a magical journey as she recounts the events leading up to the destruction of her relationship with Dave and into her strange encounter with Claire. Issues of vanity, self-worth and abandonment are re-examined in unique ways as their trip unfolds.
