In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded silent screen goddess Norma Desmond lives in a fantasy world. Screenwriter Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive domain. Persuaded to work on Norma’s “masterpiece,” a film script that she believes will
put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her luxurious lifestyle. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic existence until his love for another woman leads him to try and
break free with dramatic consequences.
