Comedy. Conflicts abound between a young man from an Italian-American background and the gay Jewish writer he is forced to work with in a screen- writing class. Alex, who is straight, works in a restaurant but dreams of working in films. When he has what he sees as a great idea for a script, he finds himself working with Elliot, who is Jewish and gay. Matters are not helped by Elliot rewriting Alex's story and renaming it 'Hit and Runway'.
