A group of ambitious film-school graduates plot to get their big break in Hollywood by becoming the very thing they most despise in this satirical showbiz comedy from writer/director Steve Morris. Three years after graduating from film school, Jack and his friends are still answering phones when they should be making movies. After jokingly whipping up some script coverage for a nonexistent screenplay, the hungry Hollywood underlings are horrified to learn that Jack's boss has somehow come into possession of the piece. Now the time has come to put up or shut up, so with their jobs on the line and their futures wide open the gang plots to turn their phony script coverage into a major feature. Unfortunately, getting the green light in Hollywood is never easy, and it doesn't take the gang long to realize that in order to get their film on the fast track to production, they'll need to become just as ruthless and uncompromising as the callous producers who have made their lives in L.A. a living hell.
