Heart-wrenching and humorous, SAVING MADELINE examines unspoken family problems and illuminates the payoff of perseverance. In the beginning, Roxy, a naïve but spunky young actor arrives in Hollywood to follow her dream and escape from her mean-spirited family. When she finds herself coexisting in a cramped Los Angeles apartment with a wounded warrior and her German shepherd, tensions run high . . . And then her mother moves in—so much for escaping.
Along comes the well-connected actor, James Jonathan Jarvis, and Roxy’s big break in showbiz: a role in a reality TV show with a wilderness survival theme. But a week before rehearsals begin, her confused mother disappears. Roxy’s search leads her close to Yellowstone National Park where she becomes trapped in a real life-and-death scenario. What gives her the strength to survive? Her goal: To save Madeline.
Though the daily obstacles that challenge these three women are paramount, they manage to find humor in their frequent calamities, and Roxy’s Hollywood misadventures buffer the troubling glimpses into the world of a woman whose memory is fading.
