Red and Maggie live together. She wrote a well received novel, but that was four years ago. He has been fired from his construction job and, using a manual on how to write and sell a screenplay in six weeks, is furiously typing away. He pitches his work to Maggie's agent and she loves it. The bidding gets hot and heavy DeNiro may be interested. But he isn't and the deal dies. Undeterred, Red begins another screenplay about aliens. This delightful comedy was originally produced on Showtime.
