Throughout his young life, Rail McClain has been mollycoddled by his wealthy parents. They have been overprotective and indulgent toward him, yielding to most of his desires and whims. During his four, carefree years in high school, he majored in sports and minored in grades.
Now, eighteen year old Rail is leaving the comfort and protection of home to venture into the world of college. Of course, Master McClain has no idea what he wants to do with his future, only what his society-conscious mother has designed for him. To say that Rail is like most other American boys his age, is like saying lemons and watermelons taste the same.
Rail is independent, opinionated, and headstrong. He also contains a very large dose of frivolousness and facetiousness. Some think of him as lazy. However, in his defense, his caring grandfather often chuckles as he remarks, ‘Rail’s just blowing in the wind’.
Nevertheless, having what you might deem to be a few good qualities, and also a few bad ones, in reality Rail McClain is as naïve as hell.
It only takes him one year at Marquette University to crush his mother’s dream of his becoming a dentist. Then, to his parent’s dismay, Rail announces that he has decided he wants to be an actor. He convinces them to allow him to attend a drama college in Hollywood, California. Once there, he begins to receive a very juicy taste of life.
