This low-budget comedy is filled with quirks, but few real laughs as it tells the tale of a strange pair of couples who get strangely involved. Sal is an aspiring screenwriter while his wife Sally wants to be a rapper (even though she has no sense of rhythm). They have a platonic marriage and some hints are given that they could be brother and sister. One night they are hanging out in their home when they discover that another couple, Venison and his sister Puree have been spying upon them. Venison is an angst-ridden aspiring screenwriter who has written over 40 scripts but refuses to have any of them produced until after he has died as he considers posthumous fame the only fame worth. Generous Sally offers to read them all. If she deems them good, Sal and Puree will make Venison's wish come true. Unfortunately, the latter two do not count on Sally's falling in love with Venison. Meanwhile Puree and Sal also ignite a romantic flame.
