A comedy writer in a career freefall becomes convinced that he deserves

more, and sets out to write his own Hollywood ending. Truth proves

stranger than fiction as he implicates his family, his best friend, and a

bewitching young woman to get what he thinks he’s got coming. Seduction,

suspicion, and suspense become intertwined in a twisted tale of comic noir

that leaves no one unscathed.
