FLIM: The Movie by Raffaello Degruffola

Ravi, a simple man who spent his youth lurking on the outer fringes of the Bollywood movie scene, has big dreams of becoming an A­‐List Hollywood film director. 
Ravi possesses enough bombastic front and distilled charisma to pursued a accountant of dubious moral standing to finance his assault on Hollywood and his first feature film, that has yet to be written.
Maybe, just maybe, with the assistance of his rapidly expanding entourage, cast and crew keen for employment, Ravi stands as much chance of achieving his wild dream of Oscar glory as anyone. Movie audiences view Ravi’s surreal and inglorious journey to the stuff of movie legend through the hand­‐held lens of the amateur documentary film maker Scot Landers and his crew. Naturally, Ravi fully expects that, this Film, the making of his film, to be a glossy, showbiz tale of one man’s meteoric rise to the top. But when accusations of money laundering and sexual harassment start to fly, Ravi’s fragile grip on both his dream and his sanity start to crumble.
The police launch a criminal investigation. And the footage from the documentary team take on a different meaning when used as evidence against him!
