Next explores the world of young girls and teenagers who come to Los Angeles in search of a universal dream: to become a famous actress. Every day there is a steady stream of happy faces through the airport, later seen rehearsing their lines in the supermarket queue as they go after their slice of the sickly cake we are promised every time we turn on the TV.
