It's a biker/action film about making biker/action films
Star William Smith basically plays himself in this tale of the difficulties low-budget filmmakers face when making their films outside of the Hollywood system. This film is especially cynical about the ways in which these films get financed and how the good guys always get ripped off in the end. Smith just wants to make movies so he puts up his house as collateral and borrows mob money while he's being harassed by some old psycho biker buddies looking for easy money. This film makes you appreciate the hell that is low-budget B-movie filmmaking.
