When the next big movie franchise goes into production and opens its doors looking for the next “It girl” to play the lead role, Paige’s roommates Cassie and Jake convince her to go to the open casting call. Never in her wildest dreams does she think she will even make it to the callbacks, but after an electric audition with Hollywood heartthrob Rainer Devon, her chance of a lifetime happens. She gets the part and her life is about to change forever.
Meanwhile, intrigue is flowing through Hollywood as every actor wants a part in the new “Locked” film.
