A mock documentary about fictional actor Nick Decker's rise to stardom within the plastic world of Hollywood. Filmmaker Adam Rifkin decides to make a documentary charting an up and coming actor's rise. However, his first choice bows out because he is offered a part in a studio film, and the doc crew would not be allowed on set. Rifkin turns to his second choice, Decker. However, as Decker's career fails to take off as planned, the first choice actor is fast becoming a real star.
