Synopsis

A mockumentary about would-be New York actress Lisa Picard, who hopes to get more than a fleeting taste of fame when a racy cereal commercial brings her unexpected national notoriety. Couple that with a breakout role as Melissa Gilbert's sister in the upcoming made for TV movie "A Phone Call For Help," and Lisa is on her way to having the light hit her spot. Earnest documentarian Andrew, who senses this actress's dreams are about to be fully realized, tracks her every move, attempting to capture the essence of someone in the seconds preceding their fifteen minutes of fame. "How do they walk, dress or act?" Complicating matters even further is the fact that our objective documentarian is not so secretly hoping that this documentary about fame will help propel him to fame as well.
