A faded screenwriter in the 1940s woos her troubled ex-writer son into collaborating on a screenplay. The gangster/sci-fi B-movie in their imagination unfolds before us, involving a chic crime czarina, a beautiful but icy lady scientist, and her failed and understandably bitter human cloning experiment. A third story is a Russian fairy tale the screenwriter told her son as a child about a painfully shy princess who forges a diabolical pact with a terrifying but surprisingly vulnerable old witch. The fairy tale inspires the movie, which then inspires the mother and son to mend their fractured relationship.
