In 1939, after a two year search for a leading lady, the movie of Margaret Mitchell’s bestselling epic novel, “Gone With the Wind”, is finally in production. Three weeks later, David O. Selznick has fired the director and shut down the set. He hires one of Hollywood’s most respected writers, Ben Hecht and taken director Victor Fleming off the set of ‘The Wizard of Oz”. With his reputation and fortune tipping towards ruin, Selznick locks Hecht and Fleming into his office and won’t let them leave until he has a screenplay for the best movie of all time. The only hitch is that Hecht can only give him one week and he hasn’t read the novel.
