The year is 1942, and Archie Glass is trying to break into Hollywood.  His opportunity comes in the form of an unusual job offer: find a young white movie star before the press reports that she is missing and he is promised a shot at his Hollywood dream.  Thus begins a journey into a Los Angeles you have never seen before.  The actors who play the maids, the busboys, the background actors in jungle films--all spring into the foreground in this dramatic noir about a man willing to do anything to make his dream come true.  As a newly minted private eye, Archie searches the back alleys of Hollywood and discovers the dark reality of being a black man in tinsel town.  (Description courtesy of the director)
