An actress (Laura Dern
) is preparing for her biggest role yet for a director (Jeremy Irons
), but when she finds herself falling for her co-star (Justin Theroux
), she realizes that her life is beginning to mimic the fictional film that they're shooting.
Adding to her confusion is the revelation that the current film is a remake of a doomed Polish production, 47, which was never finished due to an unspeakable tragedy. And that's only the beginning. Soon, a seemingly endless onslaught of indescribably bizarre situations flashes across the screen: a sitcom featuring humans in bunny suits, a parallel story set in a wintry Poland, a houseful of dancing streetwalkers, screwdrivers in stomachs, menacing Polish carnies, and much, much more.
