Set against a stunning backdrop of nights glittered with stars, autumn leaves being whipped down desolate streets, the smell of smoke and caramel and longing in the air. It is also a tale of unrequited love, loneliness and loyalty. It would make a breathtaking movie- but only if there were millions upon millions of dollars to be lavishly spent, sparing not a dime.
