BRIAN RAMSAY (40) arrives at Sundance Film Festival with his wife LIZ (38). He meets agents, pitches movies, and moves into a new house.

Sometime later, his name is removed from his parking spot. His luck changes. They downsize.

Five years later, Brian’s kids, BETSY (6) and RACHEL (4), play while he works on a new screenplay. Liz, a therapist, tells him he might consider looking for other jobs.

He goes to a meeting at AFM. He is unable to get upstairs without a pass. MIKE (30s) comes down later, and tells him that in a few days Jason might be more receptive to the project.

Later, Brian drives through Koreatown with Mike. He rear-ends the car in front of him. Mike and Brian meet with JASON, Korean American (40s), and ERIC. After the pitch goes well, Brian announces he is leaving for Korea for six months.

Brian, Jason, and Eric arrive in Korea. He meets the team including JUN (?), MOON (?), and LJ (30s). SIX WOMEN parade out, each taking a seat next to one of the men and one next to LJ. Brian meets JADE, and they all get drunk. Brian impresses them with his karaoke. They go to a spa.
