Movie extra, aspiring gigolo, and hotel sheet-changer Lance finds himself the obsessional object of two women: Clara, a scriptwriter he has hustled for a part in an upcoming movie, and Lisa, a hotel maid who hangs on his every word and deed. A producer is changing Clara's personally felt screenplay into a scripted TV game show, while Clara makes regular trips to a video mausoleum to watch a repeating home video of her dead brother. Lisa spends her free time renting and watching Lance-the-extra's films, which sparks a reciprocal obsession for her by the video-store clerk. All the characters project their feelings, their dreams, and their perceptions of other people in video; their isolated moments of passion seem only possible in or around video.

This is one of the older films by Canadian director Atom Egoyan. It is slow and art-house-like. If you are patient enough you will still enjoy the storyline.
