Novice filmmaker Joseph Lisbona directs this uneven drama about filmmaking and its more serious pitfalls. The central character is Charles (Pierre Michael), a creative type who is so crushed by the failure of his first real romance that he has to drop out of college in disgrace as his grades tumble. Searching around for the right career move, Charles gets involved in filmmaking and eventually is deep at work on his first feature-length effort. Ever the stalwart idealist, he refuses to buckle under to the demands of the less reputable side of movie-making, and so even when his film is a success he turns his back on the industry.
