North of Sunset

by Henry Baum

Verdict: A noir-ish story about two seemingly different characters who are both cold, self-centered, seek fame and—who are in many ways—the same.

If there’s an everyman, then Michael Sennet is every celebrity—a famous Hollywood actor, a movie star. He should be happy, but he’s bored. What does one do they’ve achieved the best of everything?  He doesn’t have a clue.

Meanwhile, Curt, aka the “Vanity Plate Killer,” is busy murdering people with vanity license plates, writing a book about his exploits and dreaming of fame of his own.  World’s collide when Michael, in a fit of pique, commits murder, uses the killer’s M.O. and blames the crime on Curt.

A noir-ish story about two seemingly different characters who are both cold, self-centered, seek fame, and—who are in many ways—the same.
