Francis Baker is a visually strange but popular music video director who enjoys making videos with some of the world's most popular superstars. But the reality behind the scenes is that most of the singers he encounters are stuck up divas who look down at him and spew criticism at the man despite his accolades and creativity.
One night after a depressing bar appointment, Frank accidentally discovers a spiritually powerful man in his drunken hallucination who claims to be his alter-ego and the madness begins when the director blends back into the music industry as “Reckless Cali”, the infamous pop singer. As a result, Frank gets more deals and respect from his peers and is at the top of the choice for artists.
But things take a dangerous and disconcerting turn for Francis as he gets totally absorbed in his ego and ends up stalking those who mocked him and anyone he suspects is stealing the spotlight from him. The more criticism or suspicion created by anybody on set, the more dangerous Reckless Cali becomes and the less sane Frank becomes with each person monitoring his deal with the Devil.
