"Catch this falling star..."

Ellie is a bottom-feeder actress at the end of her rope in Hollywood, when a life-changing event happens with her gay, Latinx friend, Ben. A surreal twist unfolds with comedic results, blurring the lines of fantasy and reality on the way to her dream, as she unwittingly becomes an anti-detonator guide to prevent a failure bomb. Little does she know she's the key to a revolutionary new take on Tinseltown. This is Hollywood darling, even angels have agents.
