An everyday tale of movie folk: once married superstars Gwen and Eddie have a big studio science fiction film coming out. The problem is that the two stars have split up, the film's director, Hal, has shut himself in a cabin for the final edit and won't let anyone see either the film or himself, and head of production at the studio that made the film, Lee Phillips, has been fired by studio head, Dave Kingman, and a younger man, Danny Wax, brought in. With all these problems, Kingman needs an experienced hand to ensure a successful opening and offers Lee his job back if he can sort it all out. Lee's only hope is his personal assistant Kiki - who just happens to be the sister of star actress Gwen Harrison.
