Charity Fields is a hometown Tennessee country girl. She has married her high school sweetheart and is an inspiring actress-to-be. Charity is discovered by movie producer Charles Bennett when he watches her performance at a university play. Charity is soon on her way to stardom and is cast in the producer's movie to be filmed in Dallas. Charity soon learns the hardships and struggles of being a young, married, "beginner" actress when she struggles with a jealous, devious film crew, a crude sexist director, and overbearing reporters, paparazzi, and tabloid papers.
