Overview

Writer/director Loren-Paul Caplin crafts this dark deconstruction on the contemporary obsession with fame and celebrity concerning a New York City tabloid journalist whose decadent lifestyle prompts a painful journey of self-discovery. Lorenzo is a C-level celebrity stalker whose sensationalistic stories serve as pop-culture fodder for the substance-starved masses. He works for FAME-TV, and lately his lifestyle has devolved into an unfulfilling cycle of decadent parties, casual sex, and fast-food spiritualism. Upon attempting to improve the quality of his work by exploring the relationships between chance, luck, and destiny, Lorenzo finds one of his older stories taking a sinister, and particularly sordid turn. As a result, Lorenzo's deep-rooted self-loathing is suddenly intensified, prompting a serious reevaluation of his own core values. But Lorenzo's soul has already been deeply corrupted, and by the time an unusual medical ritual unlocks both his strengths and his demons, the high cost of redemption may be more than he's willing to pay.
