How far would you go to help your best friend? That's the question journalist Devin Hunter faces when movie star Adrian Kiel asks him to be his alibi to cover a possible murder. Devin's decision starts a chain of events that spiral out of control as he tries to hold the pieces of his life together. This is a story about secret lives, psychiatric wards, celebrity "justice," blackmail, betrayal and a modern day take on James Joyce in exile; but mostly it's about relationships and their consequences. It explores the loyalty of a friendship that increasingly appears one-sided and slowly implodes. The action is fast paced, with twists to the plot at every corner. The cast of characters runs the gamut of fawning fans to million-dollar lawyers and crooked accountants. It's set in Hollywood, and peels back the culture of celebrity to reveal the snake pit underneath.
