The famous film director, David Howard, is holding auditions for "extras" in his soon-to-be-filmed epic, "The Red Babushka". Audience members are recruited to "read" for roles and David stages scenes using them and his "stars." One of these is his wife, Diane, a "serious" dramatic actress of the theatre. The other is her sister, Katie, a "not-so-serious" (but very popular) television star. Katie and Diane are appearing together on screen for the first time -- if David can keep them from killing each other, that is. But while he is able to prevent that homicide, he is powerless when Katie’s drunken ex-husband is poisoned. Or when his assistant is shot, in a stage "accident." A star-struck young security guard takes charge of the investigation.
