No matter our success, there are parts of our pasts which haunt us. Sometimes these ghosts hold a person back, but for blockbuster filmmaker Michael Benjamin Bay, it's only inspired him to create bigger and bolder films. But it's all in quiet revenge of the movie he was never allowed to make -- BABE. Bay is on his way to meet Gerry Martinez, a theatre director looking to fill his schedule of shows for the upcoming season. Is this oil meeting water or will the pair mix into something greater than either of them expected? The road to discovering Michael Bay's true intentions reveals the cinematic soul of a story that needs to be told. Michael Bay's journey begins as a pompous director turned broken soul turned artist with renewed energy. And Gerry, he finds the last piece of the puzzle, a play from Michael Bay.
