After showing dazzling promise in school but no success in Hollywood, director Dan Rittman suffered a breakdown and quit film making. Cameraman Neil Toomie, a hilarious, irreverent lapsed Catholic, shows up five years later with a horror film project he wants his friend to direct. Neil doesn't know that he has a brain tumor and limited time in which to rekindle the spark of old dreams. Dan doesn't realize how turning his back on his talent started a chain reaction in every aspect of his life. Their effort to make a low budget movie brings each to a moment of reckoning and reconciliation.

"Weller manages to cry out from deep inside his generation's soul." Chicago Tribune.
