In this stereotyped but right-on look at the world of show-business, drama builds as a New York director (Dick Sargent) auditions aspiring new talent for his upcoming play, while the possibility of rejection looms in everyone's mind. The potential stars themselves are widely variant individuals: one is an alcoholic, pill-popping young singer (Roslyn Kind) struggling in the shadow of her famous mother, another is a parole officer heading for trouble when his secretary is kidnapped, yet another is a womanizer sleeping with the rich backer of the show, and one is a young, maladjusted man whose fa├žade does not match his interior. Almost all of the aspirants get a part in the play, but their intrigues, the pressure they feel, and their personal ambitions eventually lead to acrimony and unexpected mayhem.
