The outer framework of the film is a filmmaker shooting a documentary about this group of friends and their way of life. The filmmaker unexpectedly films an accident that happened during one usual evening with this group of friends.
Unscripted is the on going tales of three out of work actors navigating the rough terrain of Los Angeles. In a land where the universal word for actors is "No", Unscripted takes a look at these three kind souls just trying to survive. Bryan is the nice guy suffering the indignaties of a young actor from backstabbing to humiliation. Krista is a girl trying to break the mold of always being the sexy girl but continually finds herself in print advertisements as the bombshell. Then Jennifer is a young girl virtually antagonized for her looks but maintains a healthy attitude. As these three mutual friends sit in on an acting class, lead by the legendary Goddard Fult, a man of many words which can be occasionally harsh but constructive criticism and genuine passion for the craft show in his teachings.

On the border of mockumentary and drama, Unscripted focuses on the lives of three struggling actors without the glamor and fake tension found in Hollywood or reality shows. The only connection between the three actors is an acting class they all attend, though they each go on their own acting endeavors.
The struggling and determination of what the characters go through truly touched me. Unscripted records the odyssey these people go through to make it big, from numerous dead end auditions to making ends meet. Instead of the actors discussing the latest Hollywood flick they starred in, they converse about the latest walk on role they had or which show hired them as a stand in. It isn't as cut throat as Greenlight, and truly allows the viewer to get in depth with the character and feel the struggle they're going through.
