Directed by John Nasca, The Glass Protege is set in Hollywood 1949. In the era of stifling movie production restraints and stars kept under oppressive control by their bosses, young British actor Patrick Glass, newly arrived in Hollywood, feels the full force of the studios’ brute career-destroying power when he embarks on a scandalous love affair with his famous male co-star. As the Hollywood powers-that-be and the prevailing social morality clamp down on this unacceptable romance and decide to tear it apart, the ramifications will still be felt forty years later when Ava meets her future father-in-law Pat, a bitter and reclusive former actor - and gradually uncovers the secrets and truth of his past.
