Looking for Lola is a classic comedy of errors with a romantic twist. It is the story of Mike (Mark Kassen) and Lola (Ara Celi) -- two lost souls that move to California to make their dreams a reality. Mike is an aspiring writer with no professional experience. He moves to Los Angeles and lies, claiming to be a wealthy editor, in order to appease his parents. He constantly looks for work, but can never seem to find anything. Lola, meanwhile, is an aspiring dancer, but her illegal status leaves her with very few options. She makes a living by taking care of her boss's mansion. The two meet each other and fall in love just in time for Mike's parents to come over for a friendly visit. With the parents completely oblivious to Mike's misfortunes, life becomes a hilarious and desperate scramble on Mike and Lola's part to keep things that way.
