The Weisses are current Hollywood royalty. Father Dr. Stafford Weiss is a celebrity psychotherapist to the stars and self-help guru through his books, videos and seminars. Perhaps more famous is his thirteen year old son, Benjie Weiss, the literal and figurative bad boy star of the hit movie Bad Babysitter and its currently filming sequel. The sequel is a comeback of sorts for Benjie following a highly publicized stint in drug rehab. His career is managed by his mother/Stafford’s wife, Christina Weiss. Among Stafford’s celebrity clients is actress Havana Segrand, who is also from Hollywood royalty as her mother is actress Clarice Taggart, who died years ago in a house fire. Middle aged Havana is past her star prime, and is hoping her next movie will be the remake of Stolen Waters in the role made famous by her mother and for which Clarice received an Oscar nomination. Havana is largely in therapy because she feels that she was abused by Clarice, who still haunts her as a seemingly real vision, but she may have equally strong emotional issues related to her declining career and how she perceives she is viewed in Hollywood. Through a loose connection with Carrie Fisher, Havana hires new Hollywood arrival, late teen Agatha, as her personal assistant. Havana, Carrie and Agatha believe this connection is karmic as Agatha has physical burn scars on her face and over much of her body, which she hides under her clothes and gloves. Agatha embarks on a friendship/relationship with Jerome Fontana, an aspiring actor/writer who is working as a limo driver until his big break. Like many in his position, he hopes to use whatever life experience to work into his movie career. Although they all have these public issues, there are many secret issues with which they are dealing and which affect their behavior and well being. Agatha’s reason for coming to Hollywood in particular may have a profound effect on all those with who she comes into contact.
