Down-on-his-luck Los Angeles screenwriter Joe Lyman convinces his successful journalist girlfriend Harlequin Anderson to write the sequel to a movie that’s never been made in the first place. “There were no weapons of mass destruction. Y2K turned out to be nothing. Let’s just write the sequel!!” Joe and Harry con producer team Thom Thompson and Kyle Bix to fund the movie, and the two go on a wild ride filled with lies, greed, lust, and redemption.
