He opened an acting school promising everyone a role in his next film, aware that he probably will not realize it at all, with the only real intent to beat cash and receive the sexual favors of female students. Yet, despite being a squalid, abusive and inept person who does nothing concrete to try to realize his goal, he sees the artistic potential of one of his talented student and begins to fantasize great. And the dream forcefully pushes.
