'TABLE READ' SYNOPSIS:
A Hollywood production assistant dreams of a life in front of the camera. Instead her career behind the scenes is flourishing. Tanya bends over backwards for her demanding boss running personal errands and ignoring his rude comments in hopes of being cast in his new film. After learning that she has not been cast in the film, she sends an email to the entire cast for a "Table Read." The cast soon realizes this is not an ordinary run through of the script they have been cast to be apart of. When the cast realizes they have been duped they try to leave only to learn the only way out is through Tanya.
