Description: Morty Fineman, a brilliant, egotistical film producer--with more than 400 films to his credit--has a big cash flow problem. With the help of his previously estranged daughter, Paloma, he brokers a deal with an imprisoned serial killer who's willing to sell the rights to his life story--but only if Morty agrees to film it as a musical. Meanwhile, his loyal assistant persuades the leaders of a small Nevada town, which is hosting a film festival -- but is primarily known for prostitution--to give him a lifetime achievement award.
