SYNOPSIS
Tyler is a 22 year old amateur actor desperately fighting his way into the business. When a prominent film director notices Tyler’s outstanding work as an extra on the set of his latest film, he decides to cast him in his next project: a screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Tyler’s social circles initially ignite with excitement over his success, but as the freshness of his casting fades, so too does everyone’s interest in his endeavours. Thus, Tyler begins to dismiss his relationships as he dives deeper and deeper into his character, leading to an eventual unravelling that may not only terminate the affection of those that love him, but cost him the role he sacrificed it all for.
