Synopsis

Aging former silent-screen star Norma Desmond plots a comeback with a remake of Salome, which she will co-write with the desperate young screenwriter she ensnares in her web of delusions and dreams, in Andrew Lloyd Webber, Christopher Hampton and Don Black's musical adaptation of the 1950 film.
