Hollywood Forever Cemetery, June 2015: A freshly dug grave.
Halloween, 2014: Mona arrives in Los Angeles.
After a traumatic breakup, the confused and often drunk Mona finds herself in LA. Her brother, Joost, is an up-and-coming director whose recent success at Cannes has led him to turn an old Cary Grant movie into a sexy, space-set romance with blockbuster potential.
A tendency toward self-destruction, impulsiveness, and outlandish outbursts makes Mona the type of tormented enfant terrible that drives bleak coming-of-age classics like The Catcher in the Rye and Girl, Interrupted. This time with her brother’s career at stake, she wants to bend the town to her own will. But when everything spirals out of control, Mona is forced to decide where her loyalties lie.
