Saada, Nancy, and Kia are force to holdup in a room with casting assistant Hanna, awaiting the start of a callback audition for the female lead in the Black action film, Cleopatra Jones. It’s a role that would bring international recognition to any actor who gets the job. So, rivalries, injuries, absurdities and mockery manifest themselves as the women jostle for career advantages during the delay. (
