Her past confronted, her flops exposed, she needs her luck to change.
Iris Peacock is a stagnant actor temping at a law firm to get by. She's stuck, and needs to get her nerve back.
When Kal Mulgrew (her former stage director) suddenly appears at the office, Iris is compelled by an otherworldly impulse to take action by filming a guerilla-style documentary - Desperate: What it Took to Land a Part.
The shoot places Iris and her fellow thespians in a risky situation fraught with lust, change, and prosciutto.
