Blaze exposes the new order of women and power in the cut-throat arena of up-market magazines. The idealistic baby boomers have been pushed aside and it's every woman for herself.
An intimate look at four women coping with their private and public lives in the world where scheming and fox cunning seem to beat skill and talent, where sexism and ageism in office politics label women over thirty over the hill.
Blaze is the story of women trying to survive, to compete, while maintaining friendships and finding happiness. In this pressure cooker world, something has to give and for some women it isn't worth the fight. For others, it's all or nothing.
