Storyline: The Past Holds The Truth! The Hollywood of the 1950s is stuck in the nostalgia of its brilliant past, with little thought for the future. Our Hero, naive and bright-eyed, is a scriptwriter, movie buff and star-worshipper who longs to relive the Golden Age of Film. One cold Halloween, he gets his chance when he receives an anonymous note inviting him to the Green Glades Cemetery where he is promised a great revelation. This heralds the start of a fantastic death-defying trip into the past - and the truth
