Synopsis: An account of a Midwestern filmmaker's effort to make an independent picture. Mark Borchardt is passionate about cinema, and his dream project is a film called "Northwestern". But he is in serious debt, and decides that if he finishes his horror short "Coven", he will be able to finance his masterwork with the money he'll raise from video sales. His attempts to follow this plan involve his 82-year old uncle, his girlfriend and a series of dreadful jobs, but Mark will never give up.
