SYNOPSIS
In search of social prestige, a billionaire businessman decides to make a movie to make his mark. For this he hires the best: a stellar team made up of the famous filmmaker Lola Cuevas and two renowned actors, both of enormous talent, but with even greater egos: a Hollywood actor and an independent theater actor. Both legends, but they had never worked together. Through a series of eccentric challenges posed by Lola, they must face each other, but also their own trajectories.
