Laney (Crystal Chappell) has enjoyed decades as a soap diva in fictional Valley Springs. She is a legend in the daytime drama world and is not ready to end her career. Her love is Eva (Jessica Leccia) and retiring in a beach house is a dream life. Except that Laney is facing early onset Alzheimer’s. And now the couple devotes their lives to finding the million happy nows that become fewer and farther between. Fans will recognize Chappell and Leccia as a momentary couple on Guiding Light, with a follow-up web series where the couple finally consummated the “connection” of their affection for one another. The chemistry still works in this heart wrenching story that finds the sweet and the tender in the face of real-life drama. (SH)
