Everyone is dying to make it in Hollywood.
Especially Davis Lowe. Unfortunately, he keeps finding only second unit work, taking the jobs the real directors can't--or won't--do. Together with cameraman Jared Mane and film editor Terrence "Otter" Ottman, he runs a tiny, independent production company off (waaaay off) the Sunset Strip. Davis spends his days scrounging for crumbs left by the big studios while he puts off marrying the lovely aspiring actress Susan Campbell.
Enter Torsten Gross: enigmatic German director whose violent horror films seem a little too real for Davis and his crew. After signing on to work for the filmmaker and his brutal leading man Lars Krieg, the boys are faced with a rash of actress suicides and a police investigation in the midst of a movie shoot stranger than anything Hollywood could dream up.
Soon Davis will race to save those he cares about from the clutches of a man who will stop at nothing to finish production, as he unravels a mystery that will have him doubting the art of filmmaking...and reality itself.
