Hollywood, 1937, presents F. Scott Fitzgerald, deeply in debt and desperate to succeed in screen writing. O'Nan spotlights a man determined to stay sober and work around the clock, a man forever devoted to the love of his life, Zelda, and their daughter, Scottie. Sheila Graham, famed gossip columnist, genuinely loves and looks out for his big-hearted, complex man. Project after project is canceled by Hollywood bosses, and Scott's health is failing him. His heart is not strong enough to stretch in so many directions, while the glamor and lifestyle of his years of fame haunt him. O'Nan brilliantly recreates the aura of this gifted writer!
