Young black man about town, "Lamont" (Alvin Seme) pushed by the constant surveillance of his everyday life, discovers the real power is offscreen. At the same time an actress, Iris (Tricia Vessey) refuses to "die" in a casting, which in turn piques the interest of the director (Matt Borum). She returns to her east Village apartment she shares with another actress, "Mira" (Liz Stauber) who is desperate for fame whatever the price. Iris retreats in her room, seemingly setting off a trend of people saying no, one of them being Kurt (Norman Reedus) who disapears from the movie being shot outside her house. As Iris searches for something real, in the city and in herself, Lamont sets off a wave where the real nobodies step out and into control.
