Plot Summary

Once a renowned director, Haskell Edwards has wallowed in a self-inflicted haze of drug and alcohol abuse for nine years. This has been his life since witnessing the suicide of his one true love, Cello Shea, an iconic young film star. When a cutting edge tech-company approaches Haskell to direct a film about Cello's life, he is stunned to meet the actress who will portray her - an incredibly life-like robot. Horrified and fascinated at the same time, he can't turn down the opportunity to honor his lost love's memory and repair her suicide-tarnished legacy. Recruiting his old friends, and even some enemies, in the production, Haskell has to relive his relationship with the Hollywood sex symbol. Ultimately, he's forced to address the differences between his love for Cello, and his growing obsession with a machine that... is nothing more than a programmed doppelgänger. Written by Jason Curtis

Quotes Haskell Edwards: It's a show for idiots, Milt. A Rhesus monkey could direct it and never stop jacking himself.
Milton Green: So what does it say that you keep fucking it up?
Haskell Edwards: That I'm a fuck up? Big shock.
Milton Green: You've gotten pretty good at feeling sorry for yourself.
Haskell Edwards: Well, the position was open so I took it.
Milton Green: Cello wouldn't have like it. And it's Bonobos, by the way.
