The enthralling tale of "Daytime Drama" follows actress Calliope Hart who, for 25 years, has been known to soap opera fans as Napa Valley's resident diva, Jessica Sinclair. Once work is done for the day, however, Callie takes on the mantle of a flustered and harried single mother, scrambling to provide for her 12-year-old son and her own mother. As such, when the network announces that her show will be cancelled, Callie is beyond shocked, and finds herself contending with an identity crisis. Driven by financial concerns for her family that includes blackmail payments to her son's biological father, she quickly rallies fans to save the show. However, when she learns that her mother has been driving her son to auditions Callie's strictly forbidden, Callie sees her own son's youth and drive in competition with her age and experience. Callie must, in the end, decide whether to play it safe and continue fighting to keep her show alive and kicking, or summon the courage to take a risk and start over from scratch.
