The film is part behind-the-scenes documentary and part narrative feature. The first section follows director Paul Verhoeven as he navigates the production of a crowd-sourced film. Shooting only four minutes of a prepared script, the remainder is culminated from thousands of submitted pages. In the second section, the finished film unfolds. Verhoeven's initial premise offers the hint of a plot involving a pregnant former mistress and a struggling business, but thanks to the crowd-sourced script the story that develops is anything but predictable, and turns into a cliffhanger character drama that takes Verhoeven himself by surprise.
