Hollywood screenwriter Chett de Groot needs a hit to save his career. He accepts a movie star’s offer to use her secluded lake house as a writing retreat, and discovers a closet full of her old movie costumes. Lonely, freezing in Muskoka, and out of ideas, Chett entices the beautiful security guard to wear costumes and role-play in love scenes for inspiration. They discover how satisfying acting can be. Soon Catrina’s ad-libbing passionate lines in scorching “performances” that knock his thermal socks off. Chett secretly writes Catrina’s terrifying dive into a spec script. Then a film producer makes Chett an offer he can’t refuse. But when Catrina finds out, will he lose her forever?
