Cornerstone Pictures is the biggest film production company south of the equator. They have big budgets, big production value and big ideas. Only the brightest writers and filmmakers are employed and they are instantly catapulted onto the Hollywood scene. The President’s office sits at the top of a high-rise building in the heart of the city – this is where deals are made, and egos are crushed.
Next door sits its next victims. Tim – young, decent looking, money driven, self-assured and misinformed; and his best mate Tom – also young, also decent looking, also money driven, a tad self-assured and very misinformed. They have somehow bluffed their way into a meeting with giants of the film industry and have the greatest film idea to date locked safely away in their brains – or so they think.
