It is 1937 and the crowds have gathered for this year’s National Academy Awards.

The scene is set for the two main Film Companies hoping to scoop the top awards.

Marjorie - Gae Millington Owner of Centurion Films will be here with the hotly tipped ‘ Love of a Stranger’ Directed by Barton Hayes who is the ‘man of the moment’.

Max Reedmand of rival Company Dream Film Studios will be in attendance looking at the plot of ‘Love Me Baby’ which appears to have a storyline strikingly similar to a script stolen from him earlier this year…

The Evening looks set to be another showdown between these two Companies.

It may of course just be show business rivalry…it couldn’t be anything else, something perhaps more sinister…Or could it?
