Set in 1970s Montana, Lester Smalls, a middle management at a local mill, is tasked to make a film about safety at the mill, and to impress his love interest, his boss Lana St. Germain. With no one seem to care, he sets out to make his movie. But as he struggles to film it, his frustration begins to grow, his dream life and reality begin to bleed one another. That is until his movie shoot is suddenly hijacked by two filmmaker brothers.
