The movie follows Colt, a past-his-prime stuntman, who finds himself working on the movie set of his ex-girlfriend with the A-list star for whom he doubled a long time ago. When the star goes missing, and the film is in danger of being shut down, Colt volunteers to investigate the disappearance and find the missing actor.
