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.

"A poignant play suffused with humor.... A witty and rueful elegy for a generation weaned on such high idealism, learning that there are limitations to life." N.Y. Times.

"We don't have a more fluent playwright than Michael Weller." L.A. Times.

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

"Exhilarating." Chicago Daily Herald.

"Weller's work, one suspects, will outlast most of his more voguish contemporaries." Variety.
