Amazon Falls tells the story of a faded B-movie actress named Jana who refuses to let go of her dream of being a star. Famous for her roles in Amazon movies where she portrayed a variety of pre-Xena warrior-princesses, she desperately tries to keep her leg in the B-movie game, and pursues her career with a zealous fervor. She is on the cusp of forty and it’s now or never. She will not be dispirited by her job at a sleazy nightclub nor the ceaseless grind of waiting for the big break. She creates the illusion that her big break is just around the corner and her friends and co-workers are supporting her in her dreams: Aron, her much younger 25-year old boy toy is in love with her; Li is a beautiful 22-year-old actress and Jana’s best friend and protégé who will follow in her glamorous footsteps; Derek, a film producer will be the one to give Jana the big break she yearns for. But the reality is she works in a nightclub run by Tommy, her sleazy boss who encourages flirtation with an array of oily characters including Calvin, a particularly shady character from Jana’s distant past who has resurfaced to tempt her down a dark path. Jana avoids facing the truth at all costs. Despite her best efforts to live clean and expand her skills, Jana is ultimately overcome by the burden of a dream in a business that would seem to punish more for virtue than for vice. Faced with perpetual futility and diminishing returns, when is it time to finally let the dream go?
