Synopsis: Novella McClure is like most struggling actresses in Los Angeles: she's in her early 30s, her fake name sounded cooler ten years ago, and she hasn't landed a role in three years. To top it all off, she's developed a disturbing habit of eating her own flesh. Novella desperately tries to hide her strange condition from her motherly landlord, Eesha, and somewhat psychopathic best friend, Candice, but her body and mind continue to deteriorate in the depressing world of failed auditions and sketchy night clubs. Can a romantic relationship with her psychiatrist prevent her from self destruction? Or will her fatal habit continue to eat away at her?

So then the casting

director comes out,

Doesn't even look at

the sign-in sheet,

And lets Tracy audition.

She didn't even

look at the list.

Is she the bitch that got

the commercial over you?

Not just the

commercial, but like,

The last four or five

roles I've tried out for.

I hate her.

Was she that good?

I don't know, I haven't

seen any of her shit.

Well, is she really

hot or something?


I mean she's cute, but not like

Out-of-this-world beautiful.


And she's got like

this snaggletooth.

Oh, gross.

She's younger, that's

mostly the reason.

Well how young?

I don't know, early 20s.

Whatever it says on my headshot.

Look Novi, I know that

this has been really tough

For you, okay?

But you're a really good

actress, and I think

That you just need

to tough this out.

Candice, I haven't

gotten a part

In the last three years.

Nothing, not even

a corporate video.

Well you're not trying to

do a corporate video, Novi.

I mean you're trying

to become a movie star

So that you can f*ck

Michael Fasbecker.

Candice I can't get anything.

So what, are you

gonna quit, just because

You're going through

a rough patch?

A rough patch is three

weeks or three months,

Not three years.

I think that you should

give it a couple more weeks.

I mean, it's always

darkest right before

The sun comes up.

It's before the dawn.



So, you girls wanna

dance or something?

It's Candice and Novella, right?

Why don't you go

grab me another drink?

Another one?

You haven't said two

words to me all night.

Well, I'm sorry

baby, but you know,

We've just been

talking about some

Really serious shit

over here, you know?

Yeah, sounds like it.

You know what?

If you go get me another

drink I'll make it up to you,

I promise, I'm just
