|About the film:|
Former Oscar winning screenwriter KC Munk is down on his luck, reduced to counting quarters in a broken down Laundromat in a go-nowhere town. When his bookie shows up on his doorstep looking for $10,000, KC has nothing left to give so they take the only thing he has left – his best friend and 16-year-old dog, Buddha.
In order to get Buddha back, KC has to go back to the place he hates – Los Angeles – and borrow money from the one guy he knows who has money – his old friend, the infamous film (and blowhard) director Pete Smalls. Unfortunately, when KC finally gets to Los Angeles he finds out his good friend Pete Smalls is actually dead and his masterpiece, his unfinished final film, is gone.
Such begins a frantic search through Los Angeles and into Mexico for KC Munk and his best buddy Jack Games, Jack's Armenian millionaire uncle Sacco, bigwig producer Hal Lazar, Pete's gold-digging ex-wife Julia, sleazy independent financiers Bernie Lake and Leonard Proval, smoking hot French editor Saskia, and a host of other colorful characters who are all trying to find out the answer to one simple question: Is Pete Smalls Dead?
