L.A. Story is a romantic fantasy that satirizes life in Los Angeles. Harris K. Telemacher is an unmarried T.V. weatherman who doesn't realize how unhappy he is because he's so happy most of the time. It takes a freeway traffic sign to make Harris realize his plight. Via it's own form of sign language, it dispenses advice to Harris by rearranging it's lighted letters. Harris dumps his beautiful but materialistic girlfriend so that he can pursue a more idyllic relationship with the lovely Sarah, a journalist who's just arrived from London. The road to true love has some amusing obstacles but the sign is always there to keep Harris on course. Much of the humor will probably be lost to anyone unfamiliar with L.A. lifestyles.
