Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Director Russ Parr explores the drama of comedy in this film concerning four friends seeking success in an industry where friendship is cheap and success seems to come to the least deserving. Four young people from different walks of life all share a common dream - to find success as a comic actor in a town where thousands of hopefuls constantly clamor for their moment in the spotlight. But while the seductive lure of Hollywood is all stars on the surface, the polluted truth that lies beneath dictates that only one in a million can find true success. Reggie Sinclair (Guy Torry), TD "Tru Dogg" Kinkaid (Darrin Henson), Dede Calvin (Tami Roman), and Bo Clark (Todd Williams) all realize that the odds are stacked against them, but they've made an oath to stand by one another no matter how bleak their prospects for stardom become. On a rooftop adjacent to one of the most popular comedy clubs in the city, this group of friends will gather to practice their material and find the kind of support that simply isn't available on the concrete below. While it remains to be seen who will break big and who will continue to toil in obscurity, the fact that dreams can be born and shattered in the blink of an eye provides isn't enough to dissuade these tortured comics to fight for the future with everything they've got.
