Marlon Brando's Corset

Synopsis:
Television hospital Drama Healing Hands is at the peak of it s popularity, and the daily dose of back-biting, bitching and nervous breakdowns, sometimes even makes it in front of the cameras. Keeping the show high in the ratings is taking its toll on all involved: actors who feel under-valued compared to the adoration they receive from the public, a writer who struggles to make his voice heard and a director who tries to pull it all together and just make it to the end of the day. Against a backdrop of lies, love and intrigue something is going to give, it s just a matter of who and when.
