Ben is a powerful Hollywood producer and is juggling negotiations with a studio head so that his newest picture can open at Cannes in two weeks time. Problems in his life include a highly-strung director who must make edits to the film, an actor who has arrived on the set with a new full beard, and his most recent ex-wife, Kelly, whom he discovers may have a lover.
He also notices that his 17-year old daughter, from another marriage, is going through an emotional crisis. Ben tries to keep it all together, to get the green light from the studio, move his new picture past the beard crisis, and maybe win back Kelly.
