Self-destructive journalist Pierre Peders (Steve Buscemi) is no stranger to violence and inhumanity. Having made his name as a war reporter, he has traveled the world seeing some of the most horrifying sights imaginable. So it’s no surprise that he’s upset when he’s demoted to interviewing America’s most famous soap star Katya (Sienna Miller).
The two meet and instantly it’s a collision of two worlds—Pierre’s serious political intentions and Katya’s superficial world of celebrity. But perhaps all is not as it appears. As their confessions grow more intimate, Pierre and Katya find a deeper connection. Each is scarred in their own way, aching from deep, hidden pain. But honest revelations soon give way to punishing deceptions. Their confrontation evolves into a passionate verbal chess game spiked with wit, intrigue, and sexual tension capped with a riveting twist ending.
