The story follows Eileen a Hollywood starlet returning home with early onset dementia to plan her last performance – a live stream of her Death Day party. Desperate for Eileen to snap out of her morbidity and rekindle some passion for life (not to mention hoping to side step getting arrested for helping with a euthanasia party) her long suffering P.A goes in search of Eileen’s learning disabled daughter, Helen, hoping she will be able to tip the scales. Only Helen doesn’t want to play ball, she’s nobody’s inspiration and she want be played (let alone by people who forgot all about her to seek fame and fortune.) Will Eileen’s party go ahead? And will people actually tune in?
