Director. Terrence Malick
Singer-songwriter BV is hungry for success and signs a contract with fearsome record producer Cook. The stakes are weighted heavily in favour of the latter, who intends to exploit BV's talent and charm for maximum financial gain. BV's girlfriend, fellow singer-songwriter Faye, dutifully supports her man, but she has history with Cook: she previously worked as his secretary and also gave her body to him in the hope of landing her own record deal.
