Synopsis by Buzz McClain

Ray McMichael (Dan O'Donahue), the writer and director of the fictitious/real Beach House, "the best movie in the worst genre," works behind the counter of a high-end coffee shop until his big break into movies comes along. His next script is being rewritten -- and sold with significant changes in an act of unthinking betrayal -- by his friend Weston (Chris Hardwick), who also sings in a terrible rock band. Ray moves in with Tony, an Italian porn actor (Luigi Amadeo), who often brings his comely co-stars home with him. Then Ray meets the girl of his dreams, but that turns into a nightmare when he sees her in a porn movie with Tony. Then he meets Danny Farthing (Michael A. Goorjain), a hot young filmmaker who exposes the shameless pretense of Hollywood to Ray. Only in his disillusionment about his ambitions does Ray's life suddenly become clear.
