Brief Synopsis

Val Waxman is a two-time Oscar winner turned washed-up, neurotic director in desperate need of a comeback. His last film was a hit in Europe but bombs in America, and he is considered to be past it. However, his girlfriend convinces studio bosses to let him make a film about old-time Hollywood. When the opportunity comes, Waxman finds himself backed into a corner--work for his ex-wife Ellie who dumped him for the studio head bankrolling the picture; or forfeit his last shot at forwarding his career, and avoid a painful reconnect. Is Val blinded by love when he opts for the reconnect? Is love blind when it comes to Ellie''s staunch support? Literally and figuratively, the proof is in the picture.
