Synopsis

A philistine in the art film business, Jeremy Prokosch is a producer unhappy with the work of his director and so hires a legendary filmmaker to direct an adaptation of "The Odyssey”. But when it seems that the filmmaker is making a picture destined to bomb at the box office, he brings in a screenwriter to energise the script. The professional intersects with the personal when a rift develops between the writer and his wife.
