A small town multiplex is turned upside down when a famous Hollywood director, Simona Wakefield, is rumored to be sneaking into a special screening of her new film. The workers of Cinema 14 divide up in two opposing factions: the first led by Rocky, an aspiring young filmmaker who wants to impress Wakefield and get a recommendation to film school. The other led by Wade, an anarchist, wheelchair bound ticket-taker who wants to 'smash the machinery of storytelling' and sabotage the sneak preview. Everyone in the theater is on the lookout for Ms. Wakefield; finding her, however, proves to be a harder task than anyone realizes. Written by
