Alex is a film director, struggling not with his talent, but against Victor’s, his father, crushing talent as an actor. In his final effort to reconcile with his megalomaniac father, Alex writes a part for him in his latest film. But Victor doesn’t show up for the shooting, plunging Alex into a frantic struggle for his dignity, while abusing psychotherapy, drugs and alcohol. Things escalate when his desperate producer announces that Victor is suing them for breach of contract. So as a last endeavor to reach out to his father and put an end to this craziness, Alex decides to attend a party that Victor helds for his birthday. The encounter is as extraordinarily eccentric as expected, including paparazzi drone attacks, a gunfight and a family reveal.
