“Pompo is a talented and gutsy producer in ‘Nyallywood,’ the movie-making capital of the world,” reads the official synopsis for the film. “Although she’s known for B-movies, one day Pompo tells her movie-loving but apprehensive assistant Gene that he will direct her next script: a delicate drama about an aging and tormented creative genius, starring the legendary and Brando-esque actor Martin Braddock, and a young actress seeking her first break.
