Stanley Hastings, private detective, is living a dream. He is finally going to see his screenplay made into a movie. His name will be on the screen when the credits roll. He has made it! Or has he?

Starting with finding a dead body in the building the crew will use to shoot in, is just one of the downward steps this dream takes. Accidents, or are they accidents, more deaths and a steady stream of script rewrites he is constantly given are just more roadblocks to getting the movie in the can. It's enough trying to shoot around Manhattan without all these other distractions.
