The Star reflects the contemporary phenomenon of "fame without substance", a part of our celebrity-soaked culture.
Marion, a wooden doll, her friend Harley and their dog Polka, enter the imaginary World of Fame where Marion becomes a glamorous Star. But she learns painfully that stardom has a use-by-date. Her experience changes her forever but her true friends still love her.
The story explores the superficiality of stardom and the value of true friendship.
