Summary
Nick, a naive kid from Ohio, wins the Best Student Film award from the prestigious National Film Institute, and leaves for Hollywood. He is seduced by manic agents and power happy producers. Giving in to temptation, Nick sells out, sacrificing his friends, his true love, and his self-respect. But when his career comes to a halt, his dream turns into a comic nightmare and he discovers beneath the Hollywood tinsel is a system that breaks 'em as fast it makes 'em
