Shrewd studio executive Jean Shrill arranges for passionate indie-darling film-maker Bobby Sohrabi, to take over as director of a problematic movie produced by Cameron O'Neill. Cameron must navigate remaining relevant at a time when cancel-culture is all too real and is surprised when spending time with Bobby awakens a creative side of himself, he thought had long-since passed.
Cameron questions his past actions and Jean confirms his worst suspicions. There are emotional acrobatics on the day of the reshoot as Cameron and Bobby have disagreements on the "appropriateness" of his relationships with women. Bobby's best efforts to reclaim the controversial sex scene are thwarted by well-meaning actors.
Aston and Bobby aim to reconnect. Bobby, Cameron and Rick work on the edit, and Bobby and Cameron realise they may have more in common than they thought. Jean convinces Bobby and Cameron that they must fight to save the marketing budget for the film. On the lot, Cameron has a run-in with an important person from his past, while Bobby is forced to confront hers.
