A stark tale of the Hollywood machine at its finest. At its worst.
1979 and aspiring Japanese talent Mei-Poh receives the opportunity of a lifetime, a minor but very important role in what will be the summer's biggest blockbuster movie. The only catch, the only reason the role might be offered to an unknown like her, all the screen nudity.
But she is the running favorite with a recommendation from the producer's preferred actress, who is unwilling to take the role. So Mei can have it. If she wants it.
All she has to do, is convince the director she is the right ambitious young lady for the role. And how can she do that? Why simple, audition for him, alone, in his remote mountain hideaway. All alone, just her and the director... and all his guards.
Now Mei must make a choice, not about what will happen to her, but how she will respond afterward. Will Mei become a big star, or will she fizzle, and fade, and never be heard from again?
