      “ON THE ROAD WITH JOHNNY DEPP”
      In a Paris Beauty Salon, POLINA -- a vivacious Russian manicurist, dreams of becoming a movie star. She finds out that her favourite director will be attending the Cannes Film Festival. Eager to be discovered by him, but short of money, she obtains an unexpected ride from one of her clients, JOSEPHINE -- an upper-class, mannered housewife, who seizes this opportunity to break out of her "gilded cage" and head for adventure.
      On their journey through the French countryside, in pursuit of their dreams, they will: sing, steal, argue, laugh, doubt, "crash and burn", to finally discover the real secret of success.
      This story is in the vein of “THELMA & LOUISE” combined with “LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE”. The unlikely combination of these two women sets up a comedic duo. A third character joins them along the way, a big friendly dog, which they name JOHNNY DEPP. The bond that grows between this trio will touch and entertain audience members of all ages. At the end of the movie, the spectators, along with the heroes, will be surprised by the cameo appearance of the real Johnny Depp, who will be instrumental in their journey of discovery. The movie’s uplifting message will leave the audience cheering:
      “Having a dream is what keeps you alive. Overcoming the challenges is what makes life worth living!”
