“I wasn’t looking for Marilyn Monroe… even though I knew she was in town filming…” So begins In A Town Called Paradox, set in Utah during the 1950s when the Big Five Hollywood studios arrived to film their blockbuster movies.

When Corin Dunbar is banished to live with her aunt Jessie on a failing cattle ranch in Utah, she hates her new life until Hollywood arrives to transform the rural backwater of Paradox into a playground for glamorous stars. When Corin falls for Ark Stevenson – a charismatic stranger drawn to Paradox by his fascination with the movies that are filmed there – her future seems bright. That’s not the outlook facing Yiska Begay, a Navajo who’s on the run from prison. These three different lives unexpectedly collide when a horrific accident forces each of them to search for their own kind of freedom.
