Jackie York, played by Wendy Crewson, is 39, a famous novelist with an adoring public, building anticipation for her next book, and she has a big secret. She is suffering from writer’s block. In fact it could be a case of life block. After being romanced, manipulated and dumped by a wannabe movie director, ackie just can’t get back to work. Trying to save face with a writer’s gift for creative distortion, Jackie concocts an increasingly knotted mess of lies to cover up her loneliness. But Jackie’s protective shell is cracked by an unexpected source, Patrick McKeating. Patrick, played by Joe Cobden, is a brilliant writer with an inspiring enthusiasm for life and a wicked crush on Jackie. But there’s just one minor problem – Patrick is nearly 20 years younger than Jackie. With her distrust of male admirers on high alert and her carefully cultivated public image on the line, Jackie is about to get a long-overdue lesson on what really matters in life.
