FEATURE:

A Beckettian tinged examination of Hollywood, artistry, and ownership concerning a drug-addled screenwriter and his ex-boyfriend who, with prodding from their image-obsessed manager, reluctantly agree to pen "the next hit song" for a teen 'it' girl - whom they hate - in order to get their pet project produced. Things go very wrong, very fast once the pair learns that the 'it' girl is being cast as the lead in their 'gritty indie' picture.

FEATURETTE:

An atmospheric cerebral horror featurette that follows an aspiring journalist, Andi, who travels to a small tourist town to investigate the disappearance of a teenage boy. After being sexually harassed and fired from her entry-level position at a local news station, Andi attempts to scoop a former reporter, Todd, who was also fired from the station, but for very different reasons: he claims to have received unusual audio tapes concerning the teen who vanished from inside his inescapable windowless room. These interview tapes, Todd claims, are from the future and hold the key to the boy's disappearance.
