Adaptation of Martin Amis's cult 80s novel. John Self, a dysfunctional director of commercials, travels to America to make his debut film and ends up speeding towards destruction.

Bold two-part adaptation of Martin Amis's cult 80s novel, starring Nick Frost and Vincent Kartheiser.

John Self, a dysfunctional director of commercials, travels to America to make his debut feature film and ends up speeding towards self-destruction. On arrival in the glitz and grime of Manhattan, Self hooks up with hot-shot producer, Fielding Goodney, to charm the money men and cast some major stars.

As Self indulges in a non-stop diet of booze, nightlife and pornography, he is forced to juggle his unstable relationship with slippery girlfriend Selina, his overbearing and money-grabbing dad and a threatening stalker who wants his life.

Meanwhile, bickering between his stars Caduta Massi and Lorne Guyland over proposed nudity in the film threatens to halt production. Surrounded by lunatics and predators, can Self hold it together to achieve the dream or will his lust for money bring him down?
