Abstract:

Theater director Caden Cotard is mounting a new play. Determined to create a piece of brutal realism and honesty, he gathers an ensemble cast into a warehouse in Manhattan's theater district. He instructs each to live out their constructed lives in a small mock up of the city outside. As the city inside the warehouse grows, Caden's own life veers wildly off track. His daughter Olive is growing up under questionable guidance. He's helplessly driving his marriage to actress Claire into the ground. His daughter Ariel is mentally handicapped. He steadily blurs the line between the world of the play and that of his own deteriorating reality. As he pushes the limits of his relationships, both personally and professionally, a change in creative direction arrives in Millicent Weems, a celebrated theater actress who may offer Caden the break he needs.
