Ask the Dust

  • Have I been a bad boy?

Set in Los Angeles back in the 1930s, a struggling young writer has arrived with dreams of making it big. However, holed up in his hotel room, he is fast running out of money, and suffering a series case of writer's block. Inspiration arrives in the form of a sexy young waitress, and although they have a love-hate relationship, it soon gets steamy. Things get more complicated when another woman with wedding plans arrives to stake her claim. All the while, they are struggling to survive while dreaming the American dream.
