Kaveh and Raul are two B-movie co-writers who have suffered a bitter falling out. Kaveh has lost his girlfriend and spends his days getting high, while Raul is across the country studying at Columbia. When word arrives that their all-but-forgotten film, ISLAMA-RAMA 2, has made it into a film festival, the ex-friends are forced to reconnect in order to pitch a new script to the festival’s marquee guest, the mysterious and powerful producer Yukio Tai. Along the way, the pair forges their way through hilarious mishaps involving prima donna actors, cutthroat colleagues, inept agents, seedy motels, and romantic entanglements—all while trying to resolve their own issues and seize the opportunity of a lifetime.
