The seedy underbelly of the Japanese independent film scene is in the spotlight in Uchida Eiji’s film, which focuses on director Tetsuo (Shibukawa Kiyohiko), a sleazy 39 year-old who lives with his parents and trades on one minor success from years gone by. He surrounds himself with film students (ripe for exploiting) and talentless actresses (ripe for seducing). But when he realises one of the new wannabees in his group has written a good script and another has the talent to be a good actress, he sniffs a chance for fame and redemption.
