ISLE OF HOPE
Victoria (Mary Stuart Masterson) is a university professor with a grudge against her self-absorbed mother, the famed actress Carmen Crawford (Diane Ladd), for crushing her dreams of becoming a playwright. Victoria’s ex Andrew (Andrew McCarthy) tries his best to avoid the situation.
When Carmen suffers a life-threatening stroke and wakes up thinking she is living 15 years in the past, Victoria is given a unique opportunity to figure out where her life went off track and reconcile her relationship with her mother.
