SAVING MADELINE is both heart-wrenching and humorous. In the beginning, Roxy, a naive young actor arrives in Hollywood to follow her dream and escape from her mean-spirited family. When she finds herself coexisting in a cramped Los Angeles apartment with a wounded warrior and her German shepherd, tensions run high . . . And then her mother moves in-so much for escaping. Along comes the well-connected actor, James Jonathan Jarvis, and Roxy's big break in showbiz: a part in a reality TV show with a wilderness survival theme. But a week before rehearsals begin, her mother disappears. Roxy's search leads her close to Montana where she becomes trapped in a real life-and-death situation. Though the daily obstacles that challenge these three women are paramount, they manage to find humor in their frequent calamities, and Roxy's Hollywood misadventures buffer the troubling glimpses into the world of a woman whose memory is fading.
