Jack McKenzie is a professional movie composer, who's just finished working on the soundtrack for a big budget Hollywood Sci-Fi movie called The Land of the Astronauts. Unfortunately, the movie turns out to be a major box office bomb, and Jack's out of work again. To make ends meet, he gets a job as a limo driver and quickly bonds with his famous client Thomas Bower - a popular Australian actor working in L.A. who happens to be a fan of his work. He also meets wild Hollywood party girl Erica at an AA meeting he attends and falls for her. In time, the deceptive nature of those around him, the constant pressure he feels from his ex-wife and her hostile boyfriend who also happens to be his ex lawyer, and his own unbearable feeling of guilt over the accidental death of his youngest daughter push Jack to the verge of insanity. As a consequence, he starts seeing the real world around him as a waking dream.

Fog and Glitz
Appealing in its dreamy look at life on the edge of LA movie world. A film set of outer space travel sits in the protagonists head as a dream to replace his current deflated status as a once successful theme score composer , living with loss. Whether he'll sink further into failure or rise up to the stars kept me watching to the end.
