Hotshot screenwriting duo Stephen Adiano and Brian Harris might have let success go to their heads. Fired by the studio for failing to hand in a script, they plead for one more chance and lock themselves up in a room to finish their draft about a haunted clown puppet. In this horrific tragicomedy the duo learns how to write a killer story... but this time, it might just be their final deadline.
