Cinema verite reaches a new level of reality in this film-within-a-film as director William Greaves dares to break the accepted rules of cinema. It is 1968 and Greaves and his crew are in New York's Central Park ostensibly filming a screen test. The drama involves a bitter break up between a married couple. But this is just the "cover story." The real story is happening "off" camera as the enigmatic director pursues his hidden agenda. The growing conflict and chaos -- accompanied by moments of uproarious humor -- explodes on screen producing the energy, and the insights, that the director is searching for.
