Synopsis
Rebecca is an unemployed actress who is living with an equally unsuccessful screenwriter, Sarfras. Rebecca makes a living by caring for a blind and diabetic woman while going through one disastrous relationship to the next. Rebecca is invited to understudy the famous movie star Simone Harwin, in the play Electra. Although Rebecca's unfulfillment is compounded: despite outshining the Action Star with her own talent, Rebecca is treated as second class, either bullied or ignored by the cast and crew including the director Ian, the stage manager Alison. Her salvation lies within the relationship with the seemingly perfect Firefighter Bobby. Accidents start to disrupt the leading ladies of Electra and Rebecca's star begins to rise, suspicion surrounds her.
