A Rising Star is a romance between two young Trinity College Dublin students who make it to Hollywood and then get involved with others as one of them becomes a Hollywood icon. Initially, they get the attention of an influential Hollywood agent as Maria stars in a Dublin play by her lover, Jack Flynn. He is initially contracted as a script-writer, but it is Maria who really makes an impact – first in a ten-episode Hollywood series and then in a film as a widow who saves her deceased husband’s floundering advertising and media business from collapse. She impulsively stopped taking contraceptives when she met and fell for writer Bertie Windsor in India and she is soon pregnant. Windsor proposes on a bended knee and she accepts. She is then contracted to star in another Hollywood movie as a US Presidential candidate.
