Summary
"[The film] follows burned-out celebrity director Guido through a series of daily encounters and wild daydreams, the first of which finds him ascending into the clouds during a traffic jam. Seeking solace and rejuvenation at a remote health spa for the rich and privileged, he continues to encounter journalists, his producer, his mistress, and most inconvenient of all, his aloof wife, Luisa. Flashing among past, present, future and fantasy, Guido longs to make a pure and honest film while his producer goads him into a big budget science fiction spectacle."--Container
