Synopsis

Self-destructive journalist Pierre Peders is no stranger to violence and inhumanity. Having made his name as a war reporter, he has traveled the world seeing some of the most horrifying sights imaginable. So it's no surprise that he's upset when he's demoted to interviewing America's most famous soap star Katya. The two meet and immediately it's a collision of two worlds--Pierre's serious political intentions and Katya's superficial world of celebrity. But as the night progresses and their confessions grow more intimate, Pierre and Katya find a deeper connection, each scarred in their own way. Honest revelations soon give way to punishing decisions and the interview evolves into a passionate verbal chess game spiked with wit, intrigue and sexual tension.
