When James Franco took a gig on General Hospital, he brought along a documentary film crew. This film, however, is not a documentary about his time shooting the perennial soap opera, but rather an avant-garde experimental exercise. Franco and co-director Ian Olds use the footage that crew captured, but employ voice-over and a number of different post-production effects in order to create a psychological thriller about an actor named James Franco who is slowly losing his mind while filming a soap opera.
