A purple envelope with a mysterious invitation to casual sex in a Hollywood agent’s mailbox is enough to cause an utter disruption of his ‘perfect’ life. Six weeks before the wedding, he finds himself in a frenzied whirlwind of sleuthing and Los Angeles conspiracies, and with each new clue, he neurotically hurtles towards madness. In this thrilling satire/dramedy/horror/thriller, Jim Cummings delves into the rotten underbelly of contemporary Hollywood and as a latter-day Woody Allen on ketamine, he takes a neurotic, eccentric acting to a whole new level.
