The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Stafford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Cristina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star. One of Stafford's clients, Havana, is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, Clarice, a star in the 60s. Clarice is dead now and visions of her come to haunt Havana at night... Adding to the toxic mix, Benjie has just come off a rehab program he joined when he was 9 and his sister, Agatha, has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania and befriended a limo driver Jerome who is also an aspiring actor.

The apparent, laudable, intention of basing the plot of this film on a subjective and distorted vision of reality, is shipwrecked by an excess of clichés and a poor characterization of the characters, constructed so contrived and trivial. Is this the representation of what Hollywood people really are? Thanks, but we already knew that! No reason to go to the cinema only to listen this lesson again.
The result is a hodgepodge of clichés and stereotypes already seen on Hollywood and its flaws, without a plot, without wit, without malice, without feeling, all packaged and presented in a neutral manner, and that leaves neutral and fails to thrill the audience. The movie tediously flows in the total absence of emotions and surprises, despite the surreal outbursts of violence, until the trite ending, that does not vary so much compared to what you can already imagine after you've seen the first fifteen minutes of the movie.
