A motion picture mogul discovers he is living a lie of someone else’s design and decides to rewrite the ending for himself.
In just a few short hours, Parrish Clovis’s affluent life takes a downward plunge that lands him on the front page of every newspaper in America. He’s been accused of the unthinkable. One problem, though—he can’t remember brutally assaulting and raping his Emmy-nominated wife, Hana Kafka.
Hana and a crew of underemployed actors have concocted an elaborate scheme to drain Parrish’s multimillion-dollar estate. But first they must set the stage for him to murder his sister by tricking him into thinking he’s really going to kill Hana herself. When Parrish discovers the con, he throws an ingenious twist into the script. Will his fast thinking win him an Oscar . . . or get him a closed-casket funeral?
